It rarely does. Does your leg hurt? A popliteal cyst, also known as a Baker’s cyst, is a fluid-filled swelling that causes a lump at the back of the knee, leading to tightness and restricted movement. The cyst can be painful when you bend or extend your knee.

Baker's cyst does not cause fever unless it gets ruptured and further infected. But you should find other causes further.
