Salivary gland cyst

Hello everyone!
I have a cyst in one of my minor salivary glands that is driving me crazy!
I have been to several doctor's and have had a ct scan and other tests done to rule out anything bad, which it did..
My problem is: The medical professionals are giving me two alternatives: either have it surgically removed or have it drained. The surgery is: 30k and the drainage is: 6k. Insurance will not cover either procedure because I just got insurance and it is considered pre-existing.
My question for you is: What do you recommend naturally that I can do to dissolve it? I am currently taking natural supplements, given to me by my health food store. What I am taking right now is:
evening primrose oil
milk thistle
pau d'arco
Grapefruit extract ( this I rub on the area twice each day)

If any of you have experience with this sort of thing, could you lend your expertise? thanks so much..
