Not likely: 2 cm is pretty small for ovarian and paraovarian cysts. Small cysts probably couldn't cause enough compression to affect the nerves that supply sensation to your legs.

Usually not: Two 2 cm cysts are generally not big enough to cause leg numbness. Get checked out for another cause. Also the small cyst on the ovary will likely resolve on its own in several weeks.
