In brief: Not really

If large, expanding, draining, infected the best option for cure is surgical excision.
Some few small ones may not be detected until late..

In brief: No.

The appropriate treatment for a branchial cleft cyst or sinus is an operation to remove it.
After consideration of all factors, the recommendation is that you have an operation to remove the branchial cleft cyst. Check this http://www.Thehutchinsonclinic.Co.Uk/pdf/pg083.Pdf.
