Dont' ignore cysts: I take it you are talking about breast cysts. The answer is yes, cysts can absorb - but do not ignore a mass in your breast for two years. If a mass persists after two or at the most, three menstrual cycles, have a doctor look at it and at least, do a needle biospy to make sure it's not cancer.
