Hi, Allisha,
Thanks for query.
As you told that there is no cure of your cyst and subsided by medicines.
Now only option is going for surgery.
It is not a major procedure so go for surgery in absence of your husband.
You can wait till your husband comes but problem of expiring your medical benefits it is better go for surgery.
Ok and bye.
