Thanks for your question.
Usually malignancy can be ruled out if the cyst size remains persistently less than 6 cm or decreases in size gradually.But there are other important radiological,biochemical and clinical factors those need to be correlated to opine about the malignancy potential of a cyst.
I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further problems, please do not hesitate to go to the doctor.
Wishing you all the best.
