Default Accidentally got water in were the engine oil goes. Help

As title states, I high pressured the engine after a coolant change. Not being careful a little after that, I begun to do an oil change and I opened the cap on the engine to pour the oil in, not realising that there Water sitting around the cap from the high pressure, and as I opened it about 50 mils or 4 table spoons water fell in with it.

Will this do any damage. Don't want to start the car until I know what to do.

Someone told me it's only a small amount and it should have a breather so the water will eventually evaporate because of the heat. Is this true?

unless the oil goes milky don't worry about it it will evaporate out.
i pour more out of my catch can than that due to water/meth injection.

Well as soon as I put the water in the motor was reasonably warm. I just drained it and put new oil in and a new filter on aswell. Do I need to change the oil again??

I'd keep an eye on it and if it doesn't look milky I'd leave it. I highly doubt there will be any traces of it

You would not have done any damage, I would have just left the water in there and gone for a good run to evaporate it..... water would be gone
