ovarian cysts are super common and as long as they're not cancerous are normally harmless. I had one when I was younger and my system is obviously good and running since Im 5 months prego. They can hurt depending on what they touch and disturb but a ton of girls go through them and never even know. Cysts on other parts of your body are very very different from those. They can press more on nerves disrupt your normal livving activity and all sorts of things. A womens reproductive system is quite well designed to take abuse.
