    Dandelion is a diuretic, I doubt it would shrink cysts.

    As to tea everyone is different , tea could bring on an attack, try to leave

    a gap between other food and drink and see if anything happens .

    Let us know how you get on.

      Hi Linda282930, thanks for the reply. I will try the leaves. I assume leaves is what you're speaking of. Someone once said that dandlion roots pull all the fluid from a cyst , but, I'll give it a try and let all know.

    Dandelion is a diuretic but it is also beneficial for the liver, particularly in combination with milk thistle and artichoke and that combination can be helpful for liver cysts. Might be worth investigating.
