In brief: Suspicion of cancer
When there is pain, rapid increase in size or infection with fevers etc and there is a family history of ovarian cancer.

Generally we look at pain, and type of cyst and age of patient.

In brief: See below
Many ovarian cysts resolve on their own but surgery may be an option for some ovarian cysts.
This depends on your symptoms, appearances of the cysts on ultrasound, and whether the cysts have been growing or persistent over a few menstrual cycles.
