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.

Hello.
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.

Hi, I ve just been told I have two cysts on my ovaries. One is 8cm and the other is 6cm. I am 37 years old and was trying to get pregnant. I ve had to do a blood test to test if they are cancerous or not, but don t get them until tomorrow, and its driving me mad. What are my chances? Gyno says they look like dermoid cysts. Should I have surgery or should I try to reduce the size naturally? Will I have kids, ever? help please

I seem to be having a dermoid cyst and will be undergoing surgery in a weeks time. Which specific doctor would I need to consult. I am aware that it needs to be a gynae but would it be anything specific within that category, it needs to be open surgery as the cyst is big and near the aorta.

I had a dermoid cyst removed 8 days ago and have started spotting again a brownish discharge with a foul odour. I have no fever and only a bit of tenderness at the ovary that the cyst was removed from.. What can possibly be happening and should I be concerned?

My daughter, who is 31, was dianosed with a cyst earlier this year. The cyst was over 4 cm and needed to be removed. In April she had laproscopic surgery to remove the cyst. During the surgery he nicked the cyst, which was a dermoid cyst. My daughter suffers from chemical perontonitus as a result of the surgery. We are looking for doctors who can treat her as her treatment isn't the best right now. She is 5'10" tall and healthy, she had a previous cyst removed 11 years ago with great results. She has lost about 50 pounds since the surgery. Weighs 140 lbs.
