preventing ovarian cyst from becoming tumour (with a family history of having that problem)

10 years back…Since I first started having my period; I have been experiencing excruciating pain in my lower abdomen. So I did USG a number of times in these recent years. 4 years back the report said I had multiple follicular cysts. Yesterday I again did another USG which is showing that I have physiological cysts in both the ovaries measuring 0.5 to 1.0 cm in dimension.

So now my questions are:

1.  I have a consistent family history of ovarian cyst’s becoming tumour. So what can I do to stop a cyst from becoming tumour? How can I know beforehand that a particular cyst is turning into a tumour? If I can keep a track of the cysts, then how frequently should I get an USG done to detect it before it can cause any danger?

2. I have tried yoga and various other ways to reduce the severe menstruation cramps (persists for 2 to 3 days) and severe blood flow (persists for 4 to 5 days) but without any result. Sometimes the pain and blood flow become so intense that I have fainted a couple of times.  (2012 may, 2014 October, 2015 may ) .

So is there any other way of reducing the pain without surgery?  I usually take` Maftal-s’ tablet when the pain becomes too much to bear.
