Right ovarian solid mass 5cm

Hi there,
Just was told via ultrasound that I had a fairly large solid mass by my right ovary.  I was told endometrioma but that I would need to get it removed. CA125 came in at only 9 so I feel better by that.  I am 46 premenopausal so not sure the accuracy of the CA125 results.  Are all endometriomas benign?  I have not had endometriosis so not sure why this happened? I had seen doctors in past YEAR for digestive and colon issues that came in clear and I take Tylenol a lot for leg and back aches.  I also saw a dermatologist for hair growth and acne.  Were any of these side effects for endometriomas? Ovarian cancer?  For any of you ladies? Any insight is welcome.... Please and Thank you!

Also never been pregnant and my maternal grandmother died of ovarian cancer at age 42.

I had a 9.5 cm complex ovarian cyst (combination of fluid and solid matter) at age 49. It was benign. But my surgeon removed all my sex organs anyway :( I curse him to this day. I thought endometriomas were always benign. There are other types of solid ovarian tumors that are benign. So hopefully, that is the case for you. Let us know.

Have you heard back yet?
I was told I had a 4cm endometreoma and when I went to get it surgically removed it was actually a borderline ovarian cancer. I don't understand how they could have gotten it so wrong?
