I've had dermoids removed, and I've had them burst. I seriously doubt you'll have the cyst long enough to deliver, recover, and have it surgically removed. It will most likely reabsorb or rupture while you are pregnant.
Most dermoids are tiny and go away on their own. Many women get them in early pregnancy and they go away on their own. If your doctor didn't tell you how unlikely it is that you'll have this cyst in 3 months, then I would run like hell from that doctor.
You'll know if you have a large one that ruptures. It feels like acid was injected into your stomach. There is NOTHING they can do. You'll be sore for a few days. The Rxs for pain aren't safe for your baby.
Surgery to remove them is obnoxious. I had emergency surgery once bc a dermoid caused a torsion in one of my ovaries. The doc made a surgical error that had me in bed for 2 weeks. 10 week recovery total.
