Kindly specify the area ..is it over the eyelid or under it? Also the duration of its existence.
Cyst is usually a fluid filled swelling or bag so we need to be very clear which type of swelling or mass is it?
A photograph would give us lot of information about its nature and whether or not  surgery is required.
Hope this helps.

It depends upon what you are calling a cyst.
If it's truly a cyst and there is no pain, redness or pus point on it then it can be removed surgically.
