Is surgery needed for a 6cm simple cyst?

I am 46 yrs old.  I went to the ER this past weekend in BAD pain!!  I found out I have a 6 cm simple cysts.  I went to the Dr. today and he wants to see my back in 3 weeks after my cycle.  He wants to see if it will decrease in size. He said if it has not, he will schedule a laproscopy to remove it.  Has anyone had a 6 cm symple cyst to dissolve on its own?  Just trying to find out what my odds are for having surgery.

Hi There
I agree with your doctor's recommendation. Most cysts resolve.However, as they get larger, resolution is less likely. I would say over 4 cm , there is a 50-50 chance of resolution
best wishes
