2.2 cm mass on ovary, ovarian cancer

Hello and thanks for reading. I am currently almost 9 weeks pregnant and during a transvaginal ultrasound a solid 2.2 cm mass was seen on my ovary. Now of course i'm freaking out and have already diagnosed myself with ovarian cancer cause I don't know what else could cause a solid mass. I have gotten multiple ultrasounds done during my pregnancy, the most recent before the one I got yesterday was almost two weeks ago and I was never told about a mass on my ovary, so my only guess is that the mass grew within the last week or so. I am going to get a copy of the reports of my other ultrasounds, but I just don't understand. The dr. said it could be benign and wants a repeat ultrasound in 2-4 weeks to see if it shrunk or got bigger. I also suffer from PCOS but not sure whether that has anything to do with this or not. Im also worried about the fact that I'm pregnant and dealing with this, what treatment could I get while pregnant? Thanks for reading and any advice would be greatly appreciated

98% of all ovarian cysts are benign. Unless you have the BRCA mutation you have less of 1% chance you have ovarian cancer. It is good they are checking again. I had cysts and they thought it was PCOS so they did not tell me. You could have the same case.

I do have ovarian cancer but I have the BRCA 1 mutation and two close relatives with ovarian cancer and two with prostate cancer before the age of 60.

I just would worry or what if just yet.
