I can suggest what my doctor prescribes for me and that is a Ibuprofen (800 mg x 3 a day), you may want to check with the doc to see if your dad can take Ibuprofen. I have had cysts for a long time, and there is still debate if cyst causes pain, I am here to say yes they do. Not only do cyst cause pain but at times debilitating pain.
