Can a dermoid cyst removal prevent me from falling pregnant?

Not likely: Dermoid cysts of the ovary (also called teratomas) can sometimes be resected, leaving some normal ovarian tissue behind. In addition, while they may recur on the opposite side, most patient just have them on one ovary.

I have a dermoid cyst about the size of a medium orangr and is currently 13 weeks pregnant. what do you suggest? Removal or diet?

Neither?: I wouldn't suggest removal of the dermoid during pregnancy unless it is causing you problems such as pain or is producing unwanted hormones. If it does need to be removed, it can be removed via laparoscopy during the second trimester. Dietary interventions won't help the dermoid in any way. Most dermoids can be observed during pregnancy and removed sometime after you have your baby. Best wishes ...Read more

I am about to have my 2nd dermoid cyst removed. How can I prevent these?  Should i remove my ovaries since i'm done having children?

Dermoids: I'm so sorry you're going through this. Sadly, there's not much you can do to prevent dermoids from forming. Definitely shouldn't remove ovaries as they are necessary for your bone and heart health prior to menopause. Hang in there, you'll be fine. ...Read more

Probably OK: Ovarian dermoid cysts are usually totally benign and asymptomatic. I would need more information relative to size and any symptoms, but a small, asymptomatic cyst would not normally interfere withy a normal pregnancy. You should obviously discuss this with a gynecologist who knows your case before becoming pregnant. ...Read more
