A Baker cyst is a fluid-filled sac that forms behind the knee. It is also known as a popliteal cyst or popliteal synovial cyst. A Baker cyst forms when an injury or disease causes extra synovial fluid to leak into the extra space behind the knee. Baker cysts are common in both adults and children. But they’re more common in older adults.
