Dear N. Mthwa
The problem of the cyst on the right tube may be an indirect reflection of tubal damage or blockages of your tubes and I would suggest you investigate this as a priority. Tubal evaluation can be done either through an x-ray called and HSG or through a laparoscopic procedure. If the tubes are not affected then the cyst is more likely of ovarian origin (that is from the ovary) or in rare cases it may be an embryological remnant. In the case of being ovarian in origin you should not be overly worried and this can be quiet easily dealt with, without any surgery as long as the cyst is smaller than 5cm. Should the cyst not respond to simple treatment methods then it may be necessary under certain circumstances to have it drained or removed.
