HI,
The treatment depends on the size of the ovarian cyst and the extent of the endometriosis. Small ovarian cysts may be aspirated or may respond to hormonal treatment. Large ones usually require surgery. Endometriosis may also in early stages respond to hormonal treatment. However advanced stages usually require surgical excision.
Hope this helps.
