Not all ovarian masses are cancer. Given your family history, I would ask the GYN for a referral to a GYN/Oncologist....and not because I think that you have cancer, it is becaue they are the experts in all gynocological issues.....they have 3 years additional training.
I don't blame you for being nervous....especially when you have watched someone suffer with OvCa....but, even when genetics play a part, it only increases the risk by about 10 percent and OvCa is considered a rare disease. So let's hope for a positive outcome.
