NO ~ Had one for years in knee.  Never caused any problem.  Your circulation problem could simply be that the chair your sitting in is causing pressure cutting off circulation. 

Wikipedia: Baker's cyst.  Although an infrequent occurrence, a Baker's cyst can compress vascular structures and cause leg edema and a true DVT (deep vein thrombosis).  A burst cyst can cause calf pain, swelling and redness that may mimic thrombophlebitis or a potentially life-threatening deep vein thrombosis (DVT) which may need to be excluded by urgent blood tests and ultrasonography.
