Ovarian cancer concerns

I am 31 years old and about two years ago I was diagnosed with PCOS. The only symptom I show of PCOS is multiple cysts on my ovaries. I had 24 about six months ago. I am not overweight, not insulin resistant, no acne, no balding, and no excessive hair growth. In the last few months I have been having extreme pain in my abdomen, bloating, losing weight (I am under a hundred pounds), constipation, and feeling full when I eat about half of what I normally do. I was wondering if the cysts that show up on an ultrasound that look like a bunch of grapes together are they likely to be cancer. I am sure I need to go to the gyno and get a CA125 blood test done, but I am just wondering if PCOS could turn into cancer and that is what I am now having symptoms of.

Thanks,
Kim
