what is the best way to get a tumor off an ovary?

Surgery: Any ovarian tumor, unless a radiologist is completely confident that it is benign and it is not causing you problems, will need to be removed surgically. If this is one of a very small minority of exceptions, your physician will have already made you aware. Good luck and best wishes.
