In brief: Vague symptoms

Ovarian cysts and early ovarian cancer don't generally increase the white count.
A Tubo-Ovarian Abcess or Ovarian Torsion can increase the white count but are usually associated with severe pain. Ovarian Cancer is fairly silent initially but then can have vague, non-specific symptoms. See an Gyn yearly and discuss your concerns. Imaging of your ovaries will usually rule-out ovarian cancer.
