These cysts can cause pain in the lower back that travels down the legs, so the pain is relieved when sitting as this position widens the spinal canal and relieves pressure on the nerves. Synovial cysts are benign, fluid-filled sacs that develop in the facet joints of the lumbar spine as a result of degeneration and if they large enough, these sacs can cause spinal stenosis .Spinal stenosis makes pressure on spinal nerves and causes pain. The synovium is a thin film of tissue that produces fluid to help lubricate the joints and when facet joints in the lumbar spine begin to degenerate, this fluid may build up in an attempt to protect the joint. These cysts are not under tremendous pressure and, even if quite large, rarely cause neurological problems or loss of bowel or bladder function.
