Thanks for posting your query.
A tumor of size 3cm x 4cm in the pelvis is likely to be an ovarian cyst which has now disappeared. The other possibility is of hydrosalpinx due to blocked tubes. Since you already have two children, even if your one tube is damaged or blocked, even then you can conceive and have children from the other tube.
Laproscopy will help in the proper diagnosis. Please do not worry.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

Thanks for writing again.
There is a possibilty of repairing the tube in case the collection of fluid is not due to a chronic infection and there are not much adhesions in the area.
Please do not worry and let them decide the best for you during the laparoscopy.
Hope my answer is helpful.
