Hi,
Thanks for writing in.

Although treatment is often unnecessary, many patients seeking consultation desire some form of definitive treatment. Cyst aspiration/injection is related to a high incidence of recurrence. Surgery generally results in lower rates of recurrence but a higher incidence of complications of more than 20% according to research studies. Please consult your doctor and discuss your case.

Hope this helps
