Brief Answer:
To be very true , it is not a good sign.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

To be very true , it is not a good sign. A growth of almost 1.5 cm in a month is a concerning feature. I would suggest that you get some tumor markers done like CA 125, CEA, Alpha fetoprotein.

Need to rule out cancer...

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXXXXX

A sudden growth is worrying as it CAN be ( not always though) a sign of cancer.

YES surgery is an option to remove the ovary and get treated.

Get the tumor markers first and let me know.
