Here are...: Generally speaking, cyst is used to describe a space with its biologically active lining to actively balance its secretion and absorption, with or without an opening like a gland.

In males, Littre's glands of urehtra and Cowper's glands; in females, Skene's glands or inside urethra itself as urethral diverticulum.
No: Treatment of urethral cysts depends on location and if they are causing symptoms. If the cysts are around or near the urethral meatus and not causing discomfort or interfering with voiding then they generally do not need to be treated.
