See details: If you mean cracking your wrist then nothing happens. If you mean what causes the sound, it is the bursting of nitrogen and carbon dioxide bubbles.

Usually not much: Cysts can get big enuf to be painfull, but that's rare. They can push on a nearby nerve to cause pain, they they shoud be sucked out or operated on.
