    No one on here (that I'm aware) is a doctor, so why do you keep asking for specific, personal medical information?  This is what you should be asking your doctor.

    You have a small cyst.  What more do you expect to learn here?

    Most cysts are not cancer. Without going into detail, I have had internal cysts found twice, neither was treated or biopsied and they went away on their own. I can't predict what your doctors will do, but I would suggest you not worry too much about it.

    It means you should ask your doctor. It also means you will die from something sometime in the future, which is true for each and every one of us.

      Get off of AnswerMug about it and go see a small cyst doctor.

    Wait a minute. How do you know cyst doctors are small?

    The tiniest of the tiny doctors who work on cysts told me so.

    Your doctor should tell you, but normally they are harmless.  I have cysts in my spine and I've also had one in my breast which I had drained.
