Ovarian Dermoid Cyst
It is a type of ovarian cyst which may contain tissue such as hair and skin, as they are formed from cells producing human eggs. It is a type of benign tumor and often referred as cystic teratoma. Generally younger women are found to have this cyst and sometimes found to be 6 inches in diameter. The diagnosis of ovarian dermoid cyst can be easily performed, as different dermoid cysts have different characteristics. If not properly exercised, they can lead to some inflammatory reaction. In some cases they lead to ovarian torsion. CT scan and MRI scan are preferred to ultrasound in this case.
