In brief: Little or no pain

Cyst removal is usually done under local anesthesia mostly the only pain you feel is the slight pin prick from the injection of the local.

In brief: Size?Infxn?Location?

It depends on size, location and degree of infection to name a few criteria.
But generally speaking, with a small amount of local anesthesia, this is a simple procedure with minimal pain other than injections and minor post-operative discomfort rarely requiring pain medications.
