If you have not attained menopause, the cause of this irregular bleeding could be attributed to menopausal changes as well as the cyst. If you are post menopausal, you need to be investigated further. Either way, you would need a pap smear, follow up sonograms and regular physical exam by a specialist. You would need a hormonal profile if pre-menopausal. Treatment would depend on the specific cause; removal of the cyst or hormonal supplementation etc. Please have regular monitoring and eat healthy. Hope you find this information useful. Wish you good health.
