Remove: It needs to be removed soon, at 13 cm it is a risk for rupture or torsion. Dermoids never go away without surgery, talk with your doctor promptly.

Ovarian cyst: Surgical intervention for premenopausal women with newly diagnosed asymptomatic, small simple ovarian cysts is not recommended. Surgery should be performed for diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cysts that are large, persistent, or symptomatic, and those with findings suspicious for malignancy.
