In brief: Go to your doctor.
Self diagnosis is very risky, especially with appendicitis.
Go to your doctor or the er. A ct would be the best test to distinguish between a cyst and appendicitis. Get checked though because if it is appendicitis, delay in diagnosis can lead to rupture which can cause fertility problems in the future, or even death.

In brief: Testing
See your doctor and get ultrasound or abdominal ct scan if your examine indicates the need for it.
Let the doctor make the diagnosis.
