Ovarian cysts are very common and almost all are benign even complex ones (I'm thinking by "complicated" you mean "complex"?). If it needs to be surgically treated, it's best to have just the cyst removed (cystectomy) but not all gynecologists have the proper skills or offer that option. Having an ovary removed can cause hormone problems...doesn't always but it can and then you have the risk of something happening to the other ovary and you're left with none. The ovaries produce hormones into a woman's 80's for optimal health so they're for more than reproduction.
