I am undecided if I should have this cyst removed. there is very little info on baker's cyst and I know that it is uncommon in young children. Any advice or has any mom ever dealt with this in their young children?

I have not seen it in a child although that doesn't mean that it can't be. I have seen it in adults and yes they can be removed they are fairly benign. I would consult with a pediatric specialist that deals with orthopedics they could give you more insite.
