I have a cyst on my leg that was drained about 10 years ago and is now back larger - is this normal? What should I do ?

In brief: Recurrent cyst
Cysts tend to recur unless the entire capsule that surrounds them is surgically removed.
See your doc to discuss options. Draining the cyst should give temporary relief.

In brief: Possibly surgery
Sometimes draining a cyst will help it to resolve the problem. However, sometimes surgically removing a cyst will allow a better chance at cure.
If, that is, this is really a cyst. Certainly have it looked at.
