Thanks for the query.
Straight answer to your question is NO.However if the pancreatic cyst is associated with pancreatic cancer then it is usually fatal within a short period of time.

 The most important aspect of management of pancreatic cysts is the determination of whether a cyst is benign (and usually needs no treatment) or if it is cancerous and must be removed.
The second most important aspect of management is to determine whether a patient with a precancerous or cancerous pancreatic cyst is a suitable surgical candidate. 
So you should not worry about it as the surgery for pancreatic cyst has same risks as other surgeries.
I think I have answered your query however you can revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck.
