It first have to be determined what the cause is. If you remove it and it is caused by a tooth, it will come back. Once the course is determined, then the treatment can be rented.

Please see an oral surgeon for evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment.
Yes, they need to determine what type of cyst it is and whether it requires more treatment.

Sorry to hear about your gum cyst. First, it would be best to make sure that it is a cyst. Then it would be best to find out the location and local anatomy near the cyst. This way, you will know if it is affecting other structures like your teeth or jaw bone.
Best of luck to you.
