In brief: Left ovarian cyst
Possible, however, nobody knows for sure how long the cyst has been there unless you had something a year ago to compare with.
You should have it evaluated by agynecologist and have serial sonogram to follow up. If the cyst looks suspicious from the size, pattern etc- then your doctor has to investigate further to rule out malignancy.
