There are many types of colonic cysts based on its location, morphology like mesenteric cyst (from intestinal mesentery), enterogenous cyst, duplication cyst, lymphatic cyst and so on.
Cysts may also develop in the rectum, anus or perianal area.

A colonic cyst has to be removed as it can cause multiple symptoms like blood in stool, constipation, abscess formation and sometimes bowel obstruction.

Please consult an MD surgeon and get a CT scan of the abdomen or barium study done to confirm the type and location of he cyst.
