Hello Practo User, The cause of Baker's cyst should be treated than the cyst itself. If fluid is removed now it will form again by next day.
Next Steps
Please consult a Orthopaedic doctor and get yourself examined and take further advice.

The baker's cyst can subside on its own by avoiding stressful activities for the patellofemoral joint. Sit on higher heights and avoid bending your knee beyond 60-70 degrees and sitting crossed.
