No not eactly teeth: Am aware of teeth like structure. Good luck.

Rare but....: Teratomas may contain hair and odontomas may contain calcifying areas that appear as malformed tooth buds or teeth. Both are rare and i would assume, although I do not know for sure, that a single tumor can contain both hair and teeth.
