There is nothing much that you can do to avoid the reoccurrence of cyst. The tendency to recurr also depends on the pathological diagnosis of the cyst which was removed. You have not mentioned anything about that. Probably you can discuss it with doctor who operated on you and he will be able to tell you more about it.
Good luck.
