In brief: Baker's cyst
Baker's cysts are usually treated by an orthopedic surgeon.
In some communitiies there may be general surgeons who have had a lot of experience with this type of cyst.

In brief: Sports medicine
See a sports medicine dr (sports physiatrist or orthopaedics).
Oftentimes cysts can be associated with other knee problems, such as meniscal tears or arthritis. Most specialists can drain (aspirate) the cyst if needed, but it can re-occur. Some can use ultrasound to help better take the fluid out (can see the cyst shrink in size in real time). But should address the underlying problem.
