Facet joint synovial cyst is one of the possibility. The other possibilities are;

Hemangioma

Lipoma.

A gadolinium contrast may be given for the confirmation.

All of these are non cancerous.

If the symptoms like pain is severe in intensity; this may need surgery. Otherwise physical therapy may be recommended.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
