Hi there, and your question is a good one, the answer in MHO is could it, well, yes, it COULD, but in likelyhood or as far as odds go will in likely not. I am curious as to your pain regarding this cyst, usually they are quite painful, mine was. In my case I also had a hysterectomy and later due to being rather worn and tired of frequent ER trips and dealing with the pain of the cyst I had to find a new gyn, who agreed to at my request remove my ovary.
The CA125 that was run for your blood work as well as any other blood test will give you a definate answer, know its very easy to say but please try not to worry, your test results should be available within 48-72 hours, call them if you dont hear from them by this time, best of luck. Please let me know how you are, and the main reason I am thinking the "odds" are in your favor is the fact that if your hyster was just 6 mths ago, if the surgeon saw anything remotley resembling cancer he woulda taken a biopsy. Also everything removed from you at the time of surgery was biospied( always is) and if that was all begnine, your probably suffering from a begnine cyst as well.
