Thank you for choosing health care magic. Most ovarian cysts are benign( non cancerous). Based on the size and activity of ovarian cysts and associated symptoms(pain , excessive menstrual bleed, irregular cycles) gynecologists can make a better decision. Usually few blood tests and ultrasound examination can predict the nature of the tumor. Usually gynecologists prefer observation for a period of time If the tumor is small in size and not growing in size. If your condition I would advise you to meet a gynecologist in your locality and she can help you in a better way based on findings.
