I am 47, and have been diagnosed with a Dermoid Cyst attached to my left Ovary. It has its own blood supply. Everything I read says it is present from birth, I have 5 children, surely it would have been seen before? I had never had an abnormal smear until 2007.
This was only found due to me going to my doctor with continuous heavy bleeding and them investigating.
I have been told by my consultant that it is not malignant, size of a large tennis ball, and will probably have hair and teeth. I am booked in for a full hysterectomy
