Detailed Answer:

Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.

A simple, unilocular and anechoic cyst is likely to be a follicular cyst which is benign and often self-resolving.

Since the cyst is 3 cm. in size, observation is all that is needed. If there are any associated symptoms or developments or an increase in the size, active management becomes necessary.

Considering your age, it is very likely to be harmless. Yet, please have proper evaluation and follow up.

Hope I have clarified your query. Please feel free to contact for further information. I will be happy to help.
