In brief: Unusual

Can bleed if the infection ruptures thru skin but you may want to have it seen to make sure it is just a cyst.
If so, a surgeon can excise it for you

In brief: If traumatized

It would be rare for a cyst to bleed unless infected or traumatized in some way.
A bleeding lesion should be examined and biopsied by your physician.
