Most ovarian cysts are "functional" (develop during normal ovarian function). They can come and go, and often will. Sometimes they will persist for months. They need to be removed if they are symptomatic (usually pain), do not resolve over time (3-6 months usually), or are suspicious to not be functional (based on sonogram/ct/mri findings). Cysts before puberty or after menopause are different.

Many ovarian cysts resolve on their own. Some may continue to grow or persist. Depending on various factors, your doctor may elect to watch them or have them removed.
