I'm 23 years old, I knew that I have bilateral dermoid ovarian cyst of 6.2*9.00 for both, I'm afraid of not being pregnant, what should I do?
No: Functional cysts such as follicles are intended to rupture (that's ovulation,) many abnormal cysts (endometriomas, benign tumors, dermoid cysts) will not go away unless removed. SO if it's a dermoid it will stay and keep growing; conversely if it DOES go away on its own it wasn't dermoid. Good wishes. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst dermoid or serous cystadenoma can be tested with small part for complete pathologic analysis?
Unfortunately Not: The problem with ovarian tumors is that you can have normal cell types adjacent to borderline or malignant cells. The ovary is notorious for hiding cancer cells which is why it's impossible to "eyeball" or sample an ovary and get a complete diagnosis. That's why often the ovary is completely removed if malignancy is suspected. Cancer can also increase in stage if spillage occurs so it's not easy. ...Read more
