Mitosis is the normal method of cell division.   Obviously, conditions like cancer can increase the rate of mitosis.   The report is explaining that your ovary has a growth in it.   Essentially, this report is stating that the nature of the growth is not known, and  that you need proper follow-up of this lesion to determine its nature.  Given that you do have a family member with ovca, it is imperative that you make certain that you get the proper exams and tests.
