Most ovarian cysts are benign.  Over 90 percent of them.  

Did the doctors give you any indication that they thought that it might be cancerous?

There are no tests to detect ovarian cancer, the only true way to detect is through a biopsy, which they will do during and after the surgery.

Remember, most cysts, even complex ones are benign, and ovarian cancer is a relatively rare disease.

Best of luck to you!!!
