Depends on pain: Ovarian cysts are very common. Every cycle you have a cyst produced where you ovulated from. Most of these cysts resolve without any treatment. However, if you are having a lot of pain then it may need to be treated now, by your doctor, because some of these cysts can twist on themselves.

I have an ovarian cyst on my right side that is 1.3cm big but why do i have a severe sharp pain in my lower right abdomen?

Doubt cyst is cause: A 1.3cm ovarian cyst is usually a normal finding. Small cysts are part of your normal menstrual cycle. They form as part of ovulation. Doctors who don't know why you have pain will sometimes tell you that your pain is from a small cyst like this but this is rarely true. I don't know why you have pain but I doubt it is coming from this cyst. Best wishes! ...Read more

I was diagnosed with a 3 mm ovarian cyst and an uti today. I can't sleep because when I lay down I feel extreme pressure in my lower abdomen. Is this n?

Re-evaluate : If the pressure is unbearable the safest option is reevaluation. Hopefully you had a urine culture sent and treatment is empiric at first.
