You are probably looking for the M-x flyspell-auto-correct-word command, 
which is bound by default to M-TAB.

M-TAB is not a very good shortcut, since it is often intercepted by
the window-manager. So, let us assume that the command has been bound
to F4 by putting the following in your init-file:

(global-set-key (kbd "<f4>") 'flyspell-auto-correct-word)
 
Press F4 one time to correct the word under the cursor ; if several
spellings are possible, they appear in the minibuffer. Now just keep
hitting F4 ; this will replace the word under the cursor with the
successive suggestions.

You may also want to look at the command
flyspell-auto-correct-previous-word, which is not bound by default.

Note that there is also the ispell utility, which is called with
M-$, if it is installed. The different suggestions are numbered
at the top of the window ; you choose one by typing the right number.
If there are a lot of suggestions, this may be faster than the 
flyspell cycling.
