A 23-year-old female asked:
I have a dermoid tumor 5.3 x 6.6 cm. can this be a reason why it is easy to gain and hard to lose weight?

NO, unlikely cause: Dermoid tumor of ovary , you are born with it , most of the time is benign , removal is the cure, weight gain is due less exercise ( or no exercise ) sedentary life , consuming more calories than required especially unhealthy junk food . If you want to want to loose weight just reverse the above and you will.
