Should I trim my overgrown growth point/sucker on my cucumber plant?

I am new to gardening and was unaware that cucumber plants should be pruned. I have watched several videos and have been able to identify and prune all the growth points/suckers. However, there is one very large one that has several leaves and the beginnings of fruit. I am worried that cutting it off could traumatize the plant and/or I could lose a lot of fruit production. Is it better to cut it or leave it? (this is a vine cucumber plant in a container on my


balcony btw)
