Common vs. Rare: At 27 years of age, ovarian cancer is very rare. The more common cause of a positive pregnancy test is pregnancy itself. Sometimes a pregnancy can implant on an ovary (ectopic pregnancy). If an ultrasound does not show a pregnancy, it is worth a look at the ovaries.

I don't believe it: You're 20 and too young to have really grasped the extent of deception in this world.
