Yes, less likely: Benign cystic teratomas, or dermoid cysts, are germ cell tumors of the ovary that account for 20-25% of all ovarian tumors and are bilateral in 10-15% of cases.1 They have a low incidence of malignancy, reported as 1-3%. ...Read more

Can you get a dermoid cyst removed without affecting the ovary?

Usually not: A dermoid ovarian cyst usually involves a substantial amount of the ovarian composition and even if it is partially resected, if any is left behind then it will recur. Most md's remove the ovary in its' entirety. This cyst has epithelial (ectoderm) derived elements like hair and teeth contained therein. ...Read more

Hello, I have a dermoid cyst on my ovary and the size is 2.8x 2.6x 3.1. Is this big enough to get removed?

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 ...Read more

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
