Chronic Right Side Abdominal/Pelvic Pain

Hi Dr,
I am a 31 y/o woman who has a history of ovarian cysts particularly on the right side.  I have had chronic pain over the last year in my lower pelvic/abdominal area on the right side.  I underwent a laparoscopy in feb 07 and an appendectomy was performed.  I was pain free for 3 months until the pain came back and so did a 2cm ovarian cyst.  My GYN told me that a 2cm ovarian cyst is unlikely to cause the chronic pain I am describing which shoots around to my back.  I am currently ovulating and the pain is much worse.  I previously had a CA125 blood test in Jan 07 which came out slightly elevated, however, the MD told me since I am a smoker and have IBS, those factors could have contributed to the elevated CA125.  I am petrified over the fact that I may have ovarian cancer...based on my symptoms, are these doctors correct in telling me not to worry at my age when the CA125 is not 100% reliable and my cyst is only 2cm?  Thanks!

Please found a new doctor....I have a 2cm chocolate cyst on my left ovary I have had 2 doctor's tell me i shouldnt have lots of pain which i do all the time...I went to a new doctor on Oct 17,2007 and not only do he see the cyst but also found endometriosis and endo..Now im having surgery on Oct 29,2007.. I always believe in a blood test and that saved my life in 2006 when i had to have my cervix removed cause i was at risk for cancer my blood test wasnt normal...By the way im only 30 and have had 5 surgery's.  Please found a new doctor?
