Tests and diagnosis

By Mayo Clinic Staff

A Baker's cyst can often be diagnosed with a physical exam. However, because some of the signs and symptoms of a Baker's cyst mimic those of more-serious conditions, such as a blood clot, aneurysm or tumor, your doctor may order noninvasive imaging tests, including:

  • Ultrasound
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
