Complex Ovarian Cyst in 60 yr olds usually cancerous? So confused and scared.

Hello, My mother is 60 years old and just had an ultrasound show two masses on one of her ovaries. One is fluid filled and the larger one (4cm) is either all solid or mostly solid. Her doctor wasn't clear. She also had fibroids in her uterus and her uterus was enlarged. I am feeling very scared for her. Everything I find online points to this being cancer because of the solid component and her age. Is that accurate? Are all complex cysts cancerous?
For example I just read this terrifying quote..."There is a 70-80 percent chance of finding ovarian cancer in a postmenopausal woman with a complex pelvic mass and an elevated CA-125."  

Thank you so much!
