Has anyone treated their dermoid cyst besides surgery? I have a 5 cm dermoid cyst on my left ovary found when I went in for a ultrasound to find the heartbeat of my 2nd child (there was not a heartbeat and I had a natural miscarriage that very night) three ultrasounds and one x-ray later my OBGYN is recommending surgery of my ovary. I want to live my life with the belief that our bodies can be healed without medical intervention, although very necessary in some cases, just not sure if so in my case. Anyone treat their dermoid cyst an alternative way-acupuncture, Chinese medicine, emotional work, dietary changes, supplements? I don't want to have surgery but I also want to have another child soon. So part of me thinks I should go ahead and have it removed and the other part of me feels that I should look into the deeper reason it exists in the first place. I believe when we develop physical conditions in our body, its the bodies way of saying pay attention to something bigger in life and fix it and the body can be fixed. I just am looking for confirmation in other's experiences since I have never really gone through anything like this before.
