In brief: Yes

Just dont do any exercises that cause you to put pressure on the cyst.
Mostly because it will hurt. Otherwise, if you feel upto it, there is no contraindication.

In brief: Yes

You may exercise with a pilonidal cyst as long as you keep the cyst covered with a bandage and you do not have fever, chills or excessive drainage.
