No need for concern: there is a difference between "cysts on ovary" and polycystic ovaries syndrome, cysts are common, and that doesn't mean you will be fat and get acne, even though you can still control those conditions, not the end of the world

No: having cysts on ovaries is different from polycystic ovarian syndrome. You may stay slim and beautiful. Just because you found cysts on ovaries doesn't mean you will get acne and get fat.
