What is a Degenerative Cyst?

I was just reading over my MRI report, and it says that I have a degenerative cyst. For one of the findings, It says: "Grade 1 L5-S1 spondylolisthesis with a degenerative cyst at the dorsal aspect of the left L5 pars." What is that?

is it a cyst in a hole in the bone???? My sister has one on the heel of her foot on the bottom. Its a cyst in a hole in the bottom of her foot. It is a degenerative thing...and usually born with it. Thats all it amounts to. A cyst in the bone...that i think break down the bone. Hers had to be removed. It got so bad she almost lost her foot. I think they are sending her to a wound center. To help it heal.
