You might ask your doctor who observed the “cyst on fetus’s ovary” to explain what s/he meant. From your description, it's not clear to me what might be the problem. It could be some embryonic tumor... but that is not that easy to diagnose. You'll have to follow up with the doctors who administered the growth scan.
