    Have you iced it? What does your surgeon say? Some people are overly prone to swelling, others not so much. Unless it's red,I don't know that'd I'd be overly worried.

    I wouldn’t say the swelling is necessarily normal if it is on the surface. It would not be all that unusual to have inflammation around the area where the cyst was removed. Likewise, the pain is pretty typical. Was this an open surgery or were they able to go in using minimally invasive techniques?
