possible ovarian cyst/cancer?

I'm 28 years old and have had on and off lower left pelvic pain for years. I have had ovarian cysts in the past.  I also have gi symptoms including alot of gas, and some pain under my breasts, upper rib cage.  I don't have any bloating, or increased abdominal size.  I recently had a colonoscopy which was normal.  The dr is sending me for a cat scan to check for kidney stones and ovarian cysts.  I am very worried this could be ovarian cancer.  I have afamily history of colon cancer (father).  Am i being irrational, or should I be very worried?
Answers:

Your worry is a very reasonable one. The odds of having ovarian cancer is very low but early detection is key to treatment so keep on with the tests and getting this addressed. Let us know how it goes.
