I think they can go away on their own, not absolutely certain. I would be asking for a time frame just for reassurance.
OTOH, my eldest niece had one, it was removed and found to have teeth and suchlike. Apparently it is quite common.

I had one myself as a teen. They are quite common.

I had the same advice all those years ago.

Some cysts are little fluid-filled bags, those are the ones that shrink on their own.

Some are solid little balls of cells. I had one like that and had surgery for it. (Mine had no teeth!) My ovary was and is fine, if that's any reassurance to you and dd.

Have they given dd a date to go back for another scan?
