Usually, cervical and ovarian cancers are not linked although they can spread from one to another.  The fact that you still have your cervix should not pose an additional risk to you considering your mom's ovarian cancer diagnosis.  However, if you didn't have your ovaries (oopherectomy) removed when you had your hysterectomy you will want to be sure to check any suspicious symptoms.  Also, ovarian cancer can sometimes present as primary peritoneal cancer in women without ovaries.  Sorry to hear about your mom.  Best wishes for continued good health to you.
