Cyst: Cyst was hard and now it has settled , with this history possibilities are that it could be lymph node, boil, sebaceous cyst which had got inflamed . Only way to confirm is the examine , so please consult a doctor.

It is very reassuring when a nodule shrinks rather than growing larger. All of the above diagnoses could give these symptoms.

No: Generally bad things don't go down. They stay big. So most likely just a pilar cyst. If painful or growing see a surgeon to remove
