Is This A Cyst?

Hey all,

I've had mild acne for about 2 years now but it's persistent so I just started 20mg of Accutane a day. I've had this little bump on my chin area for maybe 4 or 5 days now. It is definitely not like a normal pimple as it's hard to the touch. It doesn't feel like it will come to a head either. It barely hurts at all, it just feels weird. I feel like it's drying out or improving, but what is it? A cyst?

I also have this other spot on my chin which is similar, but isn't hard and its a bit bigger. It doesn't really hurt either and its pretty flat now after a little over a week of having it... It feels like something I had about a year ago in a similar location and after a couple weeks of having it, it burst and stuff came out... but this one is much smaller and seems to be going down... feels like the same thing though... can things like this go away without bursting? how should I deal with this?

Thank you all in advance!

It should go down on its own.
