I have a cyst on my arm (about 1 inch in diameter). My doctor says that I can have it removed, but that it's not necessary and that it might shrink again on its own. It hurts occasionally, expecially if it's accidentally bumped. I'd rather avoid a surgery if I can, but I have had this for a few years and it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Has anyone had a cyst where it eventually just went away?

I have had a cyst that has just diappeared just like it appeared. There are many different kinds of cysts out there. If it is really not bothering you then leave it alone. But if there is a problem with it, have it removed. Depending where it is located, is who is the one to remove it.
Wish you the best.
