Need to see a doctor: It is important that you see a doctor promptly for this situation. The fact that the cyst is swollen and tender indicates that it is infected. Although cysts can remain on the skin without presenting a problem your symptoms indicate that it is now infected. It is important to have the infection drained and determine what is causing the infection.
