1. Is there any carcinogenic ( cancerous) potential in a cyst?
Generally all Odontogenic cysts are Benign but a few do have the possibility of changing to a condition with more carcinogenic potential

2. What are the post-operative complications arising?
There are very few post-operative complications if all instructions are strictly followed.

3. What if I do not get myself operated ?
There are chances that the cyst would enlarge at the cost of neighboring structures and in the process compromise the strength of the parent structure in which it lies.
