Like Kathy said, Idk about Dermoid cysts. I kept having re-occurring ovarian cysts when I was 16 and had 2 surgeries. The first one was the size of a grapefruit and they removed it and the 2nd one they noticed I had 5 more coming so they took out the ovary and one of my fallopian tubes had swelled up and collapsed and was no good so they took it out as well. And my uterus had fell and they had to lift it back up. Although the cysts were only borderline malignant, they told me I would more than likely not be able to have kids and have a really high chance of developing cancer in that area by the time I was 30. I guess (so far) I showed them. 2 kids later and 24 yrs. old and I'm doing good. You may be able to google "Dermoid cysts" and get some info...Good luck!!!

I don't know much about Dermoid cysts, but I know that ovarian cysts can reoccur, but it wouldn't mean that the ovary has to come out. I've had 4 surgeries removing ovarian cysts and I still have all of one and 2/3 of the other ovary. But as far as that type I'm not too sure.
