Hello ma'am and welcome.

The size of the cysts do seem to be increasing, but the decision for surgery depends on a few factors.

-Whether there are multiple cysts, all increasing in size
-Whether patient responds to conservative management
-Whether patient has completed her family
-Whether there is a risk for more cysts developing in the future
-Age of the patient and whether still sexually active
And so on ma'am.

Depending on these factors and more, your doctor will suggest either conservative treatment and ask you to return in some time for follow ups, suggest a minor procedure to remove only the cysts or suggest srugery to remove the ovaries itself.

Please schedule an appointment with a doctor and discuss all of this in detail ma'am.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
