Bleeding: a cyst can have blood , so it's hemorrhagic .

It is called a hemorrhagic cyst. Usually nothing had to be done unless it's very large and has a risk of torsion (turning on itself). If it's very painful might also be necessary to operate

Yep: If they're a good ultrasonographer, they should be able to tell you.
