Brief Answer:
Better to remove the cyst surgically

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Endometriotic cyst of more than 4 cms size should be treated surgically in general.
Because cyst of this much size may not regress with medical treatment.
And also as the cyst is growing there are possibilities like torsion, rupture etc.
Endometriosis can decrease the fertility also, by altering pelvic environment, affecting the function of fallopian tubes and by leading to adhesions etc.
If the woman with endometriotic cyst gets pregnancy, that can lead to further increase in the size of the cyst due to decidual reaction in the endometrial tissue.
So better to remove the endometrial cyst, before planning for pregnancy.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion.
Take care.

Brief Answer:
Better to be cautious

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXX,
-If your doctor told to wait and watch, you can observe for one month. But better to be cautious. If your wife gets symptoms like pain abdomen, nausea, vomiting etc, better to consult gynecologist immediately.
-As I told previously, there is possibility of increase in the size of the cyst during pregnancy due to decidualization.
So better to plan for pregnancy, after regression of the cyst.
-Surgery may not affect future pregnancy. There is possibility that some amount of ovarian tissue may need to be removed.
But benefits overweigh the risks here.
