Possibly: For the most part, ovarian cysts are not genetic in the sense that they are not hereditary. Most women with ovarian cysts have some disruption of the ovarian cycle resulting in ovarian cyst development. However, their are some genetic syndromes which are hereditary and in which ovarian cysts are part of that syndrome. An example is basal cell nevus syndrome.
Complex cyst: A complex ovarian cyst is a term used to differentiate it from the more common "simple" cyst. A simple cyst is a cell membranes surrounding a fluid filled sac. A complex cyst means there are liquid and solid components. While most complex cysts are benign this term is also used to describe cysts that need closer follow up to confirm resolution as some will need surgical management.
Highly variable: Most feel like nothing, no symptoms at all. Large cysts may cause pressure, ruptured cysts are usually painful, but there is no one rule. If you are 1) in pain or 2) worried about cysts you need an exam with a doctor who can assess female pelvic pain. Good wishes.
Usually resolve: It is normal for a small cyst to develop on the ovaries from time to time. Ovarian cysts are quite common in women during their reproductive years and may be a single cyst or many cysts. Most cysts are benign and only require monitoring. Most are cysts which develops from tissue that changes in the normal process of ovulation. They usually disappear within 6-8 weeks.
