cyst with thyroglobulin of 9000

I am a 31 year old female diagnosed with papillary thyroid cancer with lymph node metastasis 2 years ago. I had a total thyroidectomy and neck dessection after diagnosis.  I have since had 2 rai treatments and all whole body scans have showed up activity in my neck. My last ultrasound showed a small cyst on left middle neck area.  The area was aspirated and thyroglobulin level was 9000. My endo refered me to my ent for  a surgical consult, but he didn't feel that I was a candidate for surgery. He said to come back if the cyst returns, then he would remove it. My question is what are the chances the cyst will return? Should I  be concerned enough to seek a second opinion? Am I rai resistant?
