In brief: Typically no

Vocal cord nodules/cysts typically do not cause pain, but often hoarseness.
If the cyst is infected or becoming too large, may cause pain and difficult breathing etc... Obviously you should follow-up with your doc about the nodule and make sure it is not malignant/canerous etc.. Good luck.
