cyst, bleeding, and hormones question

Hi, I've posted before (an "ugly" 3.5 complex cyst, 2+ months of bleeding not stopped by progesteron).Like you suggested, the second opinion I went to did  an endometrial biopsy which came back normal.
We scheduled surgery to remove cyst and probably ovary (cyst is inside).
Meanwhile, my bleeding stopped completly. On the otherhand I now have very tender breasts (like pregnant) and the weardest thing: extremely senstive teeth and gums (to cold).
my questions:
1. Could this all be related? am I just going nuts?
2. Another question, though related: Could a complex cyst go away completly?
3. Even if is shrinks and lets say no longer produces symptoms, should I choose to not have surgery, and not worry about the little mass that mght be left? Can't it still later become malignant? Thank you so much for being there and for taking the time to help so many through this ordeal. It is a wonderful forum. Kathy

Dear Kathy,

Iam of the 'guilty until proven innocent' mind frame when it comes to making sure I am not missing a medical problem. I would say that your current symptoms can be explained by the stress you have been under.

Most cysts are benign and are related to ovulation. Those 'functional cysts' will go away. You could ask your surgeon about getting a follow up pelvic ultrasound before the surgery to make sure it makes sense to have the surgery.

best wishes
