In brief: Germ cell tumor

Teratomas are germ cell tumors.
Most are cystic and composed of mature differentiated tissue, such as skin, teeth, and hair. The mature cystic teratoma accounts for most and is almost always benign. It is the most common ovarian tumor in women in their teens and twenties.
