The pain I felt when I had a tumour was more lower back pain and period pain. A simple scan (like the one they give pregnant women) can show if it is a cyst or maybe even polycysytic ovary syndrome. A further CT Scan can also be done to be more sure. In most cases a "D & C" will clear heavy periods etc.

You are a long way from worrying that it may be cancer! Good luck, and get that scan sorted!

Other than leg pain, what symptoms are you experiencing that lead you to think ovarian cancer?

Truth is - there are many different things that share the same symptoms as ovarian cancer. They can range from ovarian cysts and kidney stones to STI's and pinched nerves. All of these can be checked with very basic tests and procedures. Your concerns will be best addressed by a licensed gynecologist.

If it does happen be that you have ovarian cancer, your doctor will let you know if you can still have children based on the severity of your case. Hope this helps!
