Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the bowel cyst that you describe without examining you and going through your evaluation results. If worried you may consider taking second opinion from another gastroenterologist. Further treatment options would be started to help you control your symptoms as well as decide your candidacy for getting it operated/excised. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gastroenterologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
