Hi There
at 18 years old, the most common tumor  is a benign tumor called a dermoid or mature teratoma. These benign tumors can contain all the normal tissues of the body including teeth and bone. So you can see calcium on an x ray. The next step is surgical removal

It is possible that you have a kidney stone and the x ray shows the calcium of the stone superimposed over an ovary (remember x rays are just 2 dimensional pictures and not the final diagnosis.)

There are also other ovarian tumors that can produce calcium such as fibroids, borderline ovarian tumors and some malignancies. These are less common at your age
please let us know how things go
best wishes
