ovarian cyst

I am a 39 year old female experiencing low back and leg pain. I got an MRI to look at my right SI joint. They found the joint was fine but there was a 3cm cyst on my right ovary. I am scheduled to see a Gyn soon. My question is regarding the possibility of cancer. My family has been battling breast cancer with my mother since 2007. She has had 3 reoccurances. I heard there was a correlation between breast and ovarian cancer. Also, I had a partial hystorectomy 2 years ago because of fast growing/replicating pre-cancerous cells in my cervix. The final peice of the puzzle is that I have HPV. I know you can not give me a difinitive answer and I will be seeing a doctor in person soon...but I would love your insight about the probability of cancer vs a benign cyst. Thank you.

HI,
An ovarian cyst of 3cm size is not very large and can be a benign one. However because of history of cancer in your family, a cautious approach is advisable. Tumour markers, CT scan and MRI may be done for further assessment and to determine the nature of the cyst. Hope this helps.
Take care and good luck.
