Ovarian cyst: your ovarian cyst has grown to a size where your interests are best served by having it removed.

Yes: Yes, it will be better for you to remove it especially if it's on your right side because it could get confuzed with the appendix and you could be misdiagnosed later on with appendicitis. Since it's hemorrhagic Cyst, if it ruptured you might have serious bleeding.
