Surely the CAT scan report will say more about the lesion in ovaries, but It must me benign in nature if it is seen in mid 30's or 40's women, and most of time, its torsion leads to severe unbearable pain, which is surgical emergency.

Please do revert back with your reports, so that I can comment on it .
