DERMOID CYST

What Is a Dermoid Cyst?
  • Ovarian dermoid cysts: These growths can develop in a woman during her reproductive years. They can cause torsion (twisting), infection, rupture, and cancer. These dermoid cysts can be removed with either conventional surgery or laparoscopy (surgery that uses small incisions and specially designed instruments to enter the abdomen or pelvis).
