Get checked by Ortho: Any cyst that is growing and causing pain in the bone requires consultation with an Orthopedic surgeon. Some such cysts turn out to be giant cell tumor of the bone and may need surgical intervention. Most are treatable provided they are not too big...so get it checked while it is still small(?what size/dimensions is this cyst??).
