Could a cyst on right ovary lead to a higher incidence of ovarian cancer or polycystic disease?

Cysts vs. CA. Ovarian cysts are quite common if ovulating and rarely produce cancer. However, persistent cysts need evaluation via exam or ultrasound to be certain. Polycystic ovaries are also non-cancerous with obesity, anovulation and hair growth as symptoms.
