Nothing: A cyst that small probably related to ovulation will usually resolve on its own time is usually the best cure.

Wait and see: Options include "wait and see" if it goes away, use the oral contraceptive pill to suppress the cyst, or see a md for a possible laparoscopic removal.

It can be normal.: The ovary is designed to make a cyst when an egg is being developed. It happens each month for most women and they are not aware of it happing. Some findings are not as normal, and you should see an ob/gyn to discuss your ultrasound and symptoms.
