Yes, but unusual: Stress fractures of the metatarsals are much more common than the cuneiform bones but they can happen w/walking, esp if you have increased the amount u walk.Hope u get better!

Not likely...: While it is possible, this is not a usual bone to get a stress fracture just from walking, even if you do walk fast on concrete. The central three metatarsals are more likely to be involved.

An xray, : Ct scan or MRI would be able to tell you what the situation of the bone. Is that what normally happens? No.
But, if a cyst is present it doesn't really matter how it got there the idea is to deal with it..meaning treat it if necessary.
