In brief: Not usually

The instances cysts causes pain are if the cysts expands rapidly as a result of bleeding into the cysts, infection , or rupture.
Rarely the cysts can become large enough to press on surrounding structures including nerves and cause pain. Most cysts are benign and small and does not cause pain.
