Ovarian Mass pelvic/abdominal/back pain

I am a 35 yo mom of 4. I have had 3+ months of lower back, pelvic, and abdominal pain with intermittant cramping and swing from constipation to diarrhea. I had normal blood test about 2 1/2 months ago except for low iron. History: 7/26/06 I had my 4th c section followed an hour later my a total abdominal hysterectomy due to "postpartum uterine rupture/hemorrhage--needed many many units of blood and clotting factors--and left me in the ICU) which left me w/ only my left ovary/tube. On 1-25-07 a pelvic/abdominal CT w/ contrast showed a "3.5 cm thick-walled left adnexal cyst/cystic lesion with a small amount of peritoneal fluid adjacent to left adnexa". A transvaginal US on 1-29-07 showed "the left ovary was enlarged measuring 5.6x4.3x5.4 cm and contains a hypoechoic mass w/ uniform low level echoes and sm amount of fluid measuring 4.6x 3.9 x 4.3 cm, the appearance is most consisteant with a hemorrhagic cyst."
4-6wk follow up US set. The pain can be unbearable. I am trying to cope with motrin. What are the chances of the mass being cancerous? No recent bloodwork has been done and they never did a CA 125. Are all my symptoms attributable to this cyst? I also worry about this thing rupturing and getting an infection or twisting and going into surgical menopause. Can is be drained and checked w/o injuring the ovary? Could that be done sooner? Please advise.

please go over to the ovarian cancer forum if you need help.  There are many women on there with and without cancer that can answer all the questions that you have, because they have lived it.  99% of cysts are benign.  I would really talk to the ladies over there.  They are awesome and knowledgeable
