Pelvic mass found where ovary should be

Hello,
I am hoping someone has some insight for me as I am making myself a nervous wreck.  I had an oopherectomy in 2006 because of a large ovarian cyst.  I just recently started having some pelvic pain and went in for a transvaginal ultrasound where they found a mass where my removed ovary should be.?  They also saw cysts on my other ovary, but I am most concerned about the mass where my ovary was.  Does anyone have any words of wisdom for me?  I am only 37years old so I know the odds are in my favor that it is not cancer, but then I start to think of all the young people that are diagnosed-the chance isn't 0, you know?  Please help, I'm scared...

I've heard of ovarian remnant syndrome. Occasionally a tiny bit of ovarian tissue can be left behind and then that will act up just as a regular sized ovary does. It doesn't mean cancer but it can cause problems and pain. What are they planning to do next?
