Removal of cyst wall: Without knowing the specifics of your cyst - typically, in order to prevent a pathologic (abnormal)cyst from recurring, one must have a laparoscopy to peel out the capsule ('wall') of the cyst, while leaving the overlying nl ovarian tissue in place. To drain a cyst-increases the chance it will recur. Also-some cysts (usu. Small < 2.5cm) are normal, and their occurence monthly is part of nl cycles.
