In brief: Yes, it does
Dermoid cyst is the most common benign ovarian tumor in young women.
It is a very interesting tumor in that it can contain tissue that is found in many other organs such as thyroid, brain, skin, hair, teeth, etc. Adipose is fat and this is often seen inside a dermoid cyst. It has a characteristic appearance on ultrasound which helps to make a diagnosis of dermoid.
