Extremely unlikely: Ovarian cancer can, with enough time, can invade into the rectum and cause bleeding, but it would have to be at advanced stage at that point. In reality, it's rare for ovarian cancer to present with rectal bleeding, especially at your age. Far more likely there is a gastrointestinal issue. See your doctor to be evaluated for this. ...Read more

I would advised waiting 4-6 weeks and having a repeat sonogram to check on cyst size.
