Thanks for your reply
First of all you have to consult a gynecologist for this.
As the size of the cyst is not so big surgery should not be considered at this moment.Surgery is indicated when the size of the cyst or tumor is more than 5 cm.In this situation the medical treatment should be started with regular follow up by birth control pill.
