What is Baker’s Cyst? 

Baker’s cyst, also known as popliteal cyst, is a fluid-filled sac that forms behind the knee. It is named after the British surgeon William Morrant Baker, who first described this condition in the 19th century. This cyst is usually a result of an underlying knee joint problem, such as arthritis or a cartilage tear. While Baker’s cysts are typically harmless, they can cause discomfort and restrict movement, leading to the need for management strategies.
