I think I have a cyst my wrist hurts and I can't fully put into position to do a press-up and there is a lump there when I pull my wrist down?
Ganglion cyst: This is a ganglion cyst of the wrist. Very common, not serious, but can cause the problems you describe. If it continues to be bothersome, recommend getting the cyst aspirated (fluid removed) with compressive dressing. This has about a 50/50 chance of cure. If the cyst returns, surgical excision could be considered with about a 15% chance of recurrence ...Read more
I have ovarian cysts. I feel a bubble down by my clitoris but it's inside. It hurts. Is this a cyst? I got them before but they usually go away.
See your GYN: A "bubble" near the clitoris which is "inside" is still close enough to the surface not to be an ovarian cyst.

Cyst Removal: I assume you are talking about a cyst under the skin somewhere. Yes, it hurts. But not badly. We use lidocaine to numb the area so you get a couple of shots with a small sharp needle. That is the only pain you feel. We then remove the cyst and sew up the skin. It will be sore for a few days. ...Read more
Depends : If you need anything surgically removed, it will probably hurt a little. It also depends on how big the cyst and its location. The worst part of most minor surgeries when they numb the area with lidocaine. There is usually the sharpness of the needle and then the burn of the medication, but afterwards the area should be numb for the rest of the procedure. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
