My left hand was fine so what I'd like to know is there any kind of adjustment I should look for to help this? Also, my seat felt fine the entire length of the ride but once I got home and did some stretching, I can feel some pressure in the taint area. I know this isn't right so what kind of adjustment should I be looking for there?
Maybe none. If the bike fit before make sure it has had a full safety inspection and put miles & hours on it.
It will take time to physically adapt to cycling, aches & pains are part of the process.
Wise to limit to 25min at first, take a day off between sessions and build up time & miles.
Move your hands around in various positions, stand up and pedal a bit on every ride and keep at it.
Review fit with an experienced person when you have some rides in.
Consult your doc if that cyst is causing problems.
