Ok I'm no doctor, but I've some experience in this area.
1 your nerve gone wrong in the eye is just that, and because of this nerve you will experience uncomfortable sensations.
My grandmother's eye was completely closed up by calcium deposits on the outside of her eyelids, once they were removed everything went back to normal.
Your nerve situation is not as lucky however.
The Lump on your wrist is called a ganglion. Check out the link for more information.
I once new a kid with some rare disease who had these things all over his body, and it was all caused by nerves. The cysts were HUGE!
My brother had it while taking Karate, had it drained about four times, and then gave up karate, it went away forever.
A class mate of mine had one from playing guitar, it probably never went away for him.
Now, after reading all the posts here I started thinking: "Hey you know I've had that lump under my rib for about three or four years now". I also haven't had insurance since 1998, so I won't ever know what it is, until I give birth to some one eyed hairy tumor or something. Its one of those occasionally itchy tingling types of lumps too. I pulled a muscle around there sometime ago and this whole area hurt like an [explitive]. Thats when I thought, damn this is cancer. Oh well, I'm still kicking.
I've also had a cyst in my lower jaw that comes and goes. Sometimes it can be painful, but that is perhaps because I unconsciously irritate it by rubbing it.
FYI, cysts of all types grow everywhere on the human body, and have all kinds of reasons for growing.
My Mom had an egg sized cyst removed from her neck when I was about 5.
My wife developed a goiter, basically a thyroid cyst, after living in the US for two years, thanks to our chlorinated water (which is overchlorinated because some dips***s decided to allow geese to run rampant everywhere and they crap 50 pounds a day! its a conspiracy I tell you!)
I've also known women with cyst in their uterus and on their cervix, no I didn't actually see this, they just told me what happened at their doctors. One girl I knew had one of these kinds of cysts burst while we doing the wild thing in the front seat of her car, she saw fireworks when it happened, thought "wow", but was bed ridden in agony the next few days from the damage done.
I wouldn't jump to conclusions about implants, when there is readily available medical reasons behind things that go lump in the night.

I DO appreciate your counsel, but I have had REAL illnesses that you cannot imagine-cancer 3 times, heart attack, internal bleeding from a botched biopsy, hives all over my body so that I could not move,a weight gain of 70 pounds in 3 weeks, etc, etc.
