I'm five weeks pregnant. I had a scan today was told I have a dermoid cyst on my only ovary. How does this affect my pregnancy + should I be worried?

Dermoid cysts. Are benign and should not harm an intrauterine pregnancy. Dermoids are slow growing (1-2 mm a year) and therefore some advocate non surgical management. Larger lesions are often surgically removed as twisting of the ovary and cyst rupture can occur. Many recommend initial serial follow for lesions under 7 cm to monitor growth, beyond which a resection is advised. Read more...

How is it that an ovarian dermoid cyst can just show up in my 30s? Had ultrasounds during a pregnancy a few years ago and it showed no cysts then.

Often dermoids are worrisome for cancer if the patient has an unusual inherited condition, tuberous sclerosis; otherwise cancer in dermoids is really uncommon. Follow up by U/S or laparoscopy is often done. Read more...

I had 8cm dermoid cyst, but im pregnant, can I go operation after I gave birth im only in my 2nd month pregnancy?

Yes, can wait. Most dermoid cysts are benign and probably will not interfere with your pregnancy . However, some are malignant and you should consult with your obstetrician about the advisability of waiting until after delivery. If you wait, the cyst should be followed closely by ultrasound to assure that it is not growing rapidly. If not, perhaps you could have a c-section and have it removed at same time. Read more...
