Not likely cancer: Simple ovarian cysts (1) are rarely malignant, and (2) especially a huge ovarian cyst, such as this, is rarely malignant. The symptoms you call typical of ovarian cancer are simply the symptoms of a pelvic mass, not specific for cancer.

It's true that it COULD be cancer. It's simply not LIKELY to be cancer.
