Dermoid cysts are usually having a long stalk or pedicle which means that they are prone to torsion and in turn causing acute severe pain or even rupture which is not a pleasant complication especially that the dermoid material is very very irritation to the peritoneal cavity.
To make the long story short, dermoid cysts should be taken out after 16w of pregnancy, dont wait
