: Dermoid Cysts are essentially collections of a variety of tissues, including fat, hair, and occasionally teeth. It is unclear how they form but they are generally completely benign. Occasionally they are found in both ovaries. They can be removed surgically (laparoscopy) and patients generally do very well after surgery. They are rarely a cause for additional concern. Good luck.

: : Did anyone ever hear of 'Dermoid Cysts'?
: : What causes it, how does it effect a woman, and how is it treated? Looking forward to seeing your responses!

PLease explain how one can get this? How can people avoid getting them. And lastly,
What other methods other than Laporosopy can one have this treated?
