Dermoid cyst with teeth and spot on pancreas

My daughter is 33 , 5 2 , 142 lbs. and has a spot on her pancreas and dermoid cyst on her one ovary and possibly in other ovary...what does this all mean? Her health has been good, but a year ago, they said she had lymes disease, but she hadn t been around dogs, cats or real woods, just walks in the local park but never saw any tick bites.

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Dermoid cyst in an ovary is not a completely harmless thing. It is best to get the cyst removed surgically.If she is married and she has completed her family then there is nothing to worry. A spot on the pancreas might be a harmless chance finding.Just monitor for any increase in its size.
