In brief: Possibly
Ovarian cysts are common and usually resolve without treatment.
Removal may be considered if it persists, enlarges, twists, is painful, has a worrisome appearance, or is very bothersome. Oftentimes the discomfort women feel may not be caused by a cyst so be sure that the cyst is the cause of your pain. Birth control pills can be helpful to prevent future cysts.
