Is it possible for the scar from a cyst to be about 1/2 cm away from the actual cyst site?

I had a huge puss/fluid filled cyst on my cheek which I drained myself 6 days ago. It went completely flat afterwards with a tiny scab in the middle - I have been putting Retin A onto it to dry it out completely.

Anyway, I was feeling rather pleased with myself as I thought that the only scar I would be left with would be a tiny one when the scab came off. However, today, I've noticed that the area around the scab looks very depressed and there is a deep area of depression approx 1/2 cm away from the scab.

Soooo depressing :(
