correlate PET uptake and anechoic area in ovary

For years I have had a mass showing up in left ovary.  All say it is normal but it is always in the same ovary and now there is uptake during a pet SCAN.
I have an extensive metastatic melanoma history and all my care was in California.  I have been in Colorado for five years (cancer free during that time) but I am more concerned than they are about my results.  What do you think?
Below are results from radiology.

-NUCLEAR MED:  Abdomen and Pelvis:
There is small focal left pelvic hypermetabolism, image 283, SUV 4.9.

-PT WITH ABD PAIN, HAS HYPERMETABOLISM IN 1 (left) OVARY BY PET.

ULTRASOUND:
Ovaries are suboptimally visualized. The right ovary measures 2.7 x
2.1 x 2.2 cm.

The left ovary measures 3.2 x 3.8 x 3.0 cm. There is a
3.1 x 2.2 x 2.6 cm area in the left ovary. It is largely echo-free
but the borders are not distinctly characterized. Spectral wave
Doppler shows normal blood inflow/outflow in left ovary.

Hi There,
it maybe that you have a benign cyst in your ovary. But with your history, this is a really good time to have that ovary removed.
Please let us know how everything goes
take care
