Hello and welcome,

I can completely understand the issue.
It is either a serous cystadenoma [ a non cancerous tumor] or an ovarian cancer [cystadenocarcinoma].

The latter is more likely considering the age and rapid growth. Please get her CA 125 tested. This is raised in cases with cancer.

I also suggest that you see another doctor if possible as if it is a cancer it may need urgent surgery.

All my best wishes are with you. Take care.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
