Mature teratoma: It does not require removal at this size, although dermoids will need to be removed at sometime in the future. It is a benign tumor that can grow quite large over years, and is much more easily removed when small to mid-size. They do not "go away on their own." Many Gyn surgeons would remove it for you at this size: discuss with doctor you trust what's best for you. Good wishes
