A cyst?  I would consult with an oral surgeon but I would remove the cyst and the wisdom tooth.  How old are you?

It depends on the type of cyst but they would probably have to biopsy it to see what it is.  So removing the wisdom tooth should be done at the same time so you don't have to deal with it either.  Is the wisdom tooth impacted or coming out crooked?
