Thanks for the query.

I understand the worry you are having, especially with a family history of breast and ovarian cancers. I have gone through your medical history. Your trans-vaginal u/s showing a complex adnexal mass with solid component. It does not sound good. I would advice you to undergo investigation and treatment for the same. Best would be the excision of complex ovarian cyst with frozen section examination by the pathologist. This will tell the nature of the cyst. Accordingly further treatment may be planned. The outlook of the cyst can be told only after the nature of the cyst is identified.

Please do not get into a stage of fear. Let us get it done in a scientific way and then see.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Good luck to you.
