Our expert says:
"small cysts in the joint" are rather non-specific. Are they in the Acromio-clavicular joint, the main (gleno-humeral) shoulder joint or on the top of the ball (humeral head)?. You see cysts are not a problem themselves always but the fact that they may be in reacton to a problem, e.g. cysts in the AC joint are not significant themselves but may indicate arthritis in teh joint and then the arthritiis has to be addressed and not the cysts. You must have a specialist have a look at the X-ray and give you an opinion
