Dermoid ovarian cysts, or mature cystic teratomas, are a nonfunctional type of cyst that forms on the ovary. This type of cyst is the most common type of germ cell tumor (Mo et al. 2013). This disease was of interest to me because I have had an ovarian cyst before, although mine was a different type, I had similar complications that normally follow a dermoid ovarian cyst.
Causes of the disease and symptoms
Dermoid ovarian cysts develop when totipotent germ cells become over stimulated in women of childbearing or reproductive years, usually women within twenty to forty years of age. Although some cases have shown women as young as fourteen with a dermoid ovarian cyst (Mo et al. 2013). There is no direct cause for dermoid ovarian cysts. Majority of women have a type of nonfunctional cyst like follicular cysts or corpus luteum cysts that develop on one or both ovaries around their menstrual cycle, however they tend to go away on their own without causing any pain. Totipotent germ cells can cause cells to create, hair, skin, fat, teeth, sebaceous glands, and neural tissue. These contents form a clump like mass. Although dermoid ovarian cysts are rarely cancerous, if they grow too large they can cause serious complications.
