Depends.: It is usually reasonable to observe a cyst like this for some period of time because frequently it will resolve without surgical treatment. If the cyst persists or you have a family history of ovarian cancer then you may need the ovary removed. Need to have a discussion with your ob/gyn about treatment options.
