In brief: Perhaps

Ovarian cysts are usually not painful alone or with intercourse.
This is why ovarian cancer grows to advanced stages before it is discovered. Sometimes the location of the cyst or associated scar tissue can cause discomfort or pain, particularly an endometriosis cyst. The message is that cysts lead to a wide spectrum of symtoms but most often they are silent.
