Hi!
I assume that you've had an ultrasound showing that your ovaries are different sizes.  It certainly could be a normal variant--in other words, you were born that way.  Often the body is somewhat lop-sided--you probably have one breast larger than the other too!
If the ovary is very large, it could be a cyst, and an ultrasound or MRI could determine what is going on there and if any surgery might be necessary.
Good luck!
