I am not a doctor and you shouldn't take professional advice from some jerk on the internet anyways, but: A cyst the size of half a golf ball at rest and a full golf ball after use is astoundingly large.

If the cyst is associated with the tendon itself, you run a real risk of tendon rupture, which means you are probably never skating again.

My advice is to get a referral from your doctor to a podiatrist or orthopaedic specialist. You need better guidance than what you are receiving.
I don't believe it is a cyst, it is the tendon itself that is balled into a knot and just sitting there. It's pretty hard and I'm not sure if I'm helping or hurting it by pressing on it, trying to work it out.

My skates fit just fine, the day they finally broke in I just laced em up way too tight and then hyper extended my ankle by leaning forward too far on it and that's when I started to feel the pain.

I've been playing ice for 4 years now and have never experienced it.
