Not always: Treatment of ovarian cysts, even complex cysts varies based on your age, the cyst size, your symptoms and sometimes tumor markers. If these cysts are small- less than 6 cm- and you have no symptoms, then following with a repeat ultrasound is appropriate. If the cyst are large-greater than 10 cm- or you have pain, then laparoscopy is appropriate.
