Cyst size abnormal: Gynecologist will likely advise laparoscopic unroofing, ; thereby draining the cyst. It's quite minimally invasive, specially in hands of an experienced laparoscopic surgeon.

Yes and No: It is not normal, but it is to be expected with a patient who has polycystic ovarian disease. Usually the cysts are bilateral (both sides), and are usually lined by benign cells. Sometimes they will take a biopsy just to make sure there is nothing malignant.

I agree. PCOS are ovarian cysts; usually benign in nature. However, some ovarian cysts can be malignant. The only way to differentiate is biopsy or resection.
