Hi, Anon.

Thanks for your question.

I assume you are talking about an ovarian cyst? Surgery is sometimes necessary to remove a cyst. Sometimes cysts can be evaluated and watched for any changes. Your doctor will determine the best treatment for you.

We have some information on the site about ovarian cysts if you'd like to take a look.
