Time: Some ovarian cysts are functional cysts that will go away in 2-6 weeks. Sometimes birth control pills will help them to resolve faster. Other cysts are benign growths. These don't go away and if they get large enough will need to be removed surgically. If you aren't starting to feel better in several weeks see your doctor again. ...Read more

Cancer unlikely : Typically ovarian cancer has no symptoms until they are very advanced. Your symptoms are nonspecific, an don't point towards a single diagnosis.
