Brief Answer:
Unlikely to be cancer

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXXX, I read your query and I understand your concerns. You are unlikely to hsve reached menopause at 48. Though there is family history of carcinoma, this does not appear as carcinoma of ovary. It must be a regular simple cyst. So be relaxed till you see your gynecologist who might advice biopsy of the cyst and few blood test. Be positive and relaxed. Wait for the reports. All the best. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
