Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology

See your Doctor: Dermoids can rupture if they grow and can undergo torsion (twisting cutting off the blood supply). Both would require surgery which you do not want to have to go through if you are pregnant. See your doctor for evaluation and discuss whether this should be removed soon
