The ultrasound said likely mature cystic teratoma with no fluid present in the abdomen. What may be going on?

My wife is 53 and started having symptoms of heaviness constipation 3 months ago. She had an ultrasound that said likely mature cystic teratoma 5cm x 5cm No fluid present in her abdomen and some color flow in the cyst We are waiting for results of the MRI she had yesterday The wait is killing us as is everything we find on the internet Any idea what may be going on ?

i have a teratoma in my spleen(17 cm) i found out about that umm 11 months ago. however it has been asymptomatic until now. i will get a sharp pain in my lower L-side near my ribs and then it will feel like it is spazing for about a min. also i have had headaches off and on for years. now my head has been hurting for four days and i feel my face getting flushed. it hurts where my skull connects to my spine. no (otc) meds really help. the headache radiates to my temples or the top of my head. i am a student at the moment and do not have insurance and can not afford to go to the dr. so what can i do? could the headache be connected to the spleenomegally due to a teratoma?

I lost my baby because of tumor in his head(taratoma). blood tests (torch igg, igm) doesnt show any sign of infection. HC value of his ultrasound was 450 in 24 week pregnancy. What chances are there that it can reoccur or cause problems in future. And other tests are there that can find the cause for taratoma
