Back pain with food: Gallstones can cause pain in the right upper back, shoulder and s a pilar area. You can also get that same gallbladder pain from acalculous cholecystitis, a dysfunction of the gallbladder without stones! a special test is ordered to diagnose this disease. It's called a hida scan. This type of pain may also occur when the esophagus goes into spasm. Follow up with a surgeon in your area.

I can't either: I cannot see a cyst either. I suppose i would go with what your doc said if he has visually examined this.
