Hi Leanne

Dont stress about Ovarian Cancer. At your age it is common for women to have multiple cysts in the ovaries, and these are usually functional cysts that disappear on their own. The one with debris could either be an endometrioma (endo in the ovary) or a corpus luteum cyst (normal). The debris is most likely blood. I am 48 and always had several cysts each time I had an ultrasound. One turned out to be an endometrioma which I had removed. What concerns them is if one of the cysts has multiple compartments inside it (septations), has developed its own blood supply, is irregular in shape, and has projections inside it.

They will check you again in a couple of months and hopefully all will be fine.
