Usually no treatment is needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The treatment of intraosseous cyst depends on the size of the cyst. If the cyst is small and is not causing any symptoms then no treatment is needed. Otherwise surgical resection is planned. Usually it is a harmless benign cyst and does not need any treatment.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
