It can: Small ovarian cyst arise spontaneously in the ovary when not on administered hormonal suppression in the process of ovarian follicle/egg formation. Yes, they can and do go away spontaneously or with hormonal suppression if still small. By the way, 3 centimeters is only a little more than one inch.
