How is a Baker’s Cyst Diagnosed?

It is important to always visit a qualified medical professional if you suspect that you have either a Baker’s Cyst or feel that your Baker’s Cyst may have ruptured or burst.
Your doctor will likely require you to have an ultrasound, which will be able to confirm the diagnosis of a Baker’s Cyst.
An ultrasound will also importantly rule out or alert the doctor to any existence of a blood clot which can have several similar symptoms to a  Baker’s Cyst.
If your doctor suspects an infection then they may require a blood test and possibly an aspiration of the synovial fluid for testing & culturing.
In some cases, an x-ray or MRI may be required to rule out any co-existing conditions that may have contributed to the condition.
Hence why it is always important to have a proper diagnosis.

Importantly it can present similarly to a blood clot, hence it is important to see a medical professional in order to rule this out.
