BRCA?: Ovarian cancer is associated with breast cancer, so having the US exam is prudent screening. The nature of the cysts is the best guide, but not perfect. Best here to follow the recommendations of your doctor and the person interpreting the full images. Knowing your BRCA status might also help with the decision about early removal.
