In brief: Not cancer!

Hi Georgia. Ovarian cancer typically does not cause pain and is certainly very rare in someone your age.
This is most likely an ovarian cyst (very normal) or even a short-term bowel problem. I would take some ibuprofen and use a heat pack. It should go away shortly, if not I would seek medical attention. Good luck!
