In brief: Muscle spasm

Hello, you are probably correct that it is a hard muscle, in spasm. Muscle spasm in this area is common.
Try alternating heat and ice to the area, and take a mild pain pill like Ibuprofen or tylenol (acetaminophen). Unlikely to be related to the cysts.

Also consider therapeutic massage which can release the spasm and help reintegrate the muscle into its kinetic chain, so the spasm will be less likely to recur. Other options are dry needling (many physical therapists do this and it works well), trigger point injections, or accupuncture.
