  • What is a Dermoid Cyst?

    A dermoid cyst is an enclosed sac near the surface of the skin that forms during a baby’s development in the uterus. But unlike mature cystic teratomas, which are made up of ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm tissues from the germ layer, a dermoid cyst only has hair, skin, and adnexal features. An ovarian dermoid cyst is a benign, slow-growing tumor. It is a solitary cyst packed with sebaceous material.

    Dermoid cysts of the ovary are common tumors that are often seen in young girls and women in their reproductive phase. In some women, the tumor is diagnosed after menopause. 1 in 5 germ-cell ovarian tumors observed in postmenopausal women are dermoid cysts.

    Dermoid Cyst - Diagnosis and Treatment

    Diagnosis of Dermoid Cyst

    To identify the severity of the condition and the cause of dermoid cysts, your healthcare provider is likely to suggest the following diagnostic tests: 

      • Laparoscopy: A special device is inserted through a small hole into the abdomen to examine it visually. If necessary, a tissue sample is obtained for further analysis. Exploration of the abdomen using a laparoscope is called ‘exploratory laparoscopy.’
      • Laparotomy: The abdomen is opened through an incision for examination, and if required, a biopsy sample is obtained. Exploration of the abdomen using a laparotomy procedure is called ‘exploratory laparotomy.

    Treatment of Dermoid Cyst

    The treatment procedure for Dermoid Cyst of the Ovary depends on various factors. In some cases of small tumors (less than 4-6 cm), the growth rate is slow, and the healthcare provider may consider conservative measures instead of immediately recommending an invasive surgical approach. Generally, the treatment procedure for large-size cysts is complete surgical excision for all teratomas (mature or immature). The healthcare provider is likely to suggest the following surgical procedures depending on the size and severity of the condition: 

    • Operative laparoscopy
    • Cystectomy – It is the surgical removal of an ovarian cyst
    • Oophorectomy – It is performed for the removal of the affected ovary
    • Ovarian tissue-sparing techniques

    Apart from these treatment procedures, chemotherapy or radiation therapy may be required for malignant teratomas. Regular follow-up and screening are required in radiation therapy.

    What are the causes of the dermoid cyst of the ovary?

    It is believed that abnormal differentiation of germ cells leads to tumor formation. However, the exact cause of the development of the Dermoid Cyst of the ovary is generally unknown. In general, it is known that cancers form when normal, healthy cells begin transforming into abnormal cells – these cancer cells grow and divide uncontrollably (and lose their ability to die), resulting in the formation of a mass or a tumor.

    • The transformation of normal healthy cells into cancerous cells may be the result of genetic mutations. Mutations allow the cancer cells to grow and multiply uncontrollably to form new cancer cells.
    • These tumors can invade nearby tissues and adjoining body organs and even metastasize and spread to other regions of the body.

    What are the signs and symptoms of a dermoid cyst?

    The signs and symptoms of a Dermoid Cyst of the ovary can vary from one individual to another. Most (small) tumors are generally asymptomatic, with no significant symptoms observed, while large tumors are known to show symptoms. The common signs and symptoms of dermoid cysts are as follows: 

    • Presence of a well-circumscribed tumor mass in the ovary
    • The tumor is cystic (fluid-filled) with varying tumor form/shape
    • Generally, only one ovary is affected, but in some cases, involvement of both ovaries may be seen (bilateral teratoma)
    • The tumors may range in size from a few cm to over 10 cm
    • Large tumors (size over 4 cm) can compress the surrounding structures or organs and give the sensation of an abdominal mass
    • Abdominal pain associated with large-sized ovarian tumors
    • Abdominal discomfort, heaviness, and tenderness (especially at the iliac fossa, which is an area near the hip bone)
    • Pelvic discomfort and pain along with lower back pain
    • Frequent urination due to compression/pressure of the tumor.

    What are the possible complications of a Dermoid cyst of the ovary?

    The complications of dermoid cyst of the ovary may include the following:

    • Chances of secondary infection by bacteria or fungus in large tumor masses 
    • Chances of rupture of the tumor that may cause peritonitis. 
    • Usually, larger tumors are more prone to torsion.
    • Ovarian torsion can result in acute abdominal pain and a surgical emergency.
    • Occasionally, the recurrence of the tumor following its incomplete surgical removal.
    • Some teratomas are known to transform into malignancies, the most common cancer arising from a mature cystic teratoma is squamous cell carcinoma.
    • Damage to the muscles, vital nerves, and blood vessels during surgery
    • Post-surgical infection at the wound site is a potential complication
    • Some women experience stress and anxiety due to the fear of tumor.

    FAQs around Dermoid Cyst Treatment

    How do I know if my ovarian dermoid cyst is cancerous?

    A doctor recommends a few diagnostic tests to determine if an ovarian cyst or tumor is benign or malignant. A high level of CA-125 may indicate the presence of ovarian cancer. A doctor may also perform a biopsy to confirm or rule out ovarian cancer.

    Are dermoid ovarian cysts common?

    Dermoid ovarian cysts are one of the most common types of benign ovarian germ cell cysts found in women of age group 20-40 years. About one-third of all benign tumors diagnosed during pregnancy are ovarian dermoid cysts. They appear in both ovaries in 10% to 15% of cases.

    What causes ovarian dermoid cysts to grow?

    Dermoid ovarian cysts usually grow when skin and skin structures become trapped during fetal development. Their cell walls are nearly identical to the outer skin and may contain multiple skin structures such as hair follicles, sweat glands, teeth, and nerves.

    Can dermoid cysts destroy the ovary?

    The bigger size dermoid cysts often destroy ovarian tissue. During the cyst removal, there is a chance that some part of the ovary will be removed. However, the remaining part of the ovary can still function to produce follicles leading to pregnancy.

    How often are dermoid cysts cancerous?

    Dermoid cysts are usually benign and tend to grow slowly. In some severe cases, the cyst may rupture and become malignant.
