Ovarian Cyst

I am 30 years old with a large family history of hysterecomies.  Since I was about 15 I have had an cyst on my right ovary. Should I see a gyn oncologisy or should i be concerned?? With 3 Aunts on my fathers side of the family that all have had a hysterecomy (one of which that has had breast and ovarian cancer)-their mother passed away she also had breast and lung cancer and 5 aunts on my mothers side of the family-including my mother 4 sisters with hysterecomies-Their mother had ovarian cancer also. My sister who is now 34 had breast cancer (including her lymp nodes) at 32 and she recently found a cyst on her ovary-she recently had a hysterecomy.  What should my next step be?

How about genetic testing for the BRAC gene  also I think I would get a second opinion   with that much cancer and so forth in your family    do you have any of the early signs  bloating, frequent urination, pain in pelvic area,  feel full when eating small amounts,   think I would see a gyn/onocologist  for a work up.  Good Luck and keep us posted
