Ovarian cyst: Ovarian cysts can occur spontaneously in women, and will usually regress. If you have a persistent cyst for 3 months it should be checked out especially if a sonogram shows a solid component to the cyst. Persistent non malignant cysts can be drained either under sedation or general anesthesia using a transvaginal approach. Using bcp's will prevent cysts if you're prone to them.

Depends!: Depending on how heavy the patient is (the thinner the better in this case), the experience of the examiner (leave this in the hands of your gynecologist), and the size of the cyst (larger cysts more easily felt), an ovarian cyst may be palpable with a physical exam.
