In brief: No known cause

While ovarian cysts do occur in teenagers, they are relatively uncommon.
Slight increase risk if family history. Diagnosis can be on exam with abdominal mass; sometimes found on ultrasound for abdominal pain problems. If large, cyst may need surgical intervention. Some congenital syndromes with other signs of endocrine disease can occur.
