In brief: No. Depends.
Depends on ovary cyst size, character (slmple vs.
Complex), and how much this bugs you. Sometimes just the cyst can be removed. Sometimes taking medicine like birth control pills can tell your ovaries to stop making cysts. So it depends on many factors for you and what else may be going on.

In brief: Usually not
An ovarian cyst is a benign filled filled sac that is created monthly during ovulation.
"it" is not recurrent. Women get a new cyst every time they ovulate, each month. It is when the cysts hang around and don't resolve that there is a problem. If they are larger than 6cm, about 2 1/2 inches, they get removed because there is a comcern about bleeding. Most are treated with birth control pills.
