If your physician believes your blood tests show infection and believes that the infection is due to your cyst, then I'd suggest doing whatever s/he recommends, whether antibiotics alone or antibiotics plus surgical drainage.

 

In urgent situations like this, you need to get a second opinion from someone who can lay hands on you and examine you completely.  Over the Internet, no one can perform even a fraction of what someone can do in person.  So if you don't trust the physician who you're seeing right now who appears to be recommending surgery in light of cyst being the source of your infection, get a second opinion quickly.  Good luck!
