I found out today that I'm pregnant! 4-5 weeks along, but I also have a tumor (not a cyst) on my ovary that needs to be removed ASAP. They almost did surgery today, but it almost certainly would have killed the baby - so I opted to wait. It's a race now between the baby and the tumor. The doctors say it's safe to operate at 15 weeks, but all I can do is pray the tumor can grow at a slow enough rate to give us that much time. Scary stuff, but i'm overjoyed about the baby and praying it will work out okay.

Pregnancy Tumor

Sometimes a large lump with deep red pinpoint markings on it forms on inflamed gum tissue, usually near the upper gum line. The red lump glistens, may bleed and crust over, and can make eating and speaking difficult and cause discomfort. These growths are called pregnancy tumors and can occur at any time during the course of pregnancy, though they usually occur during the second trimester.

Don't let the term, pregnancy "tumor" worry you. These growths are not cancerous nor can they be spread to others. A pregnancy tumor is an extreme inflammatory reaction to a local irritation (such as food particles or plaque). The tumors occur in up to 10% of pregnant women and often in women who also have pregnancy gingivitis.

Pregnancy tumors are also known by several other names including pyogenic granuloma, granuloma of pregnancy, lobular capillary hemangioma, and pregnancy epulides.

Treatments for Pregnancy Tumors

A pregnancy tumor usually disappears on its own after the baby's birth. However, if the tumor interferes with eating, your dentist or periodontist may choose to remove it. This involves a simple procedure performed under local anesthesia. It should be kept in mind that even if the tumor is removed during pregnancy, it redevelops in about half the cases. If the lump is not removed, your dentist will try to determine the possible cause that triggered the tumor's development – such as built up plaque – and remove it.

You can help prevent or reduce the likelihood that a pregnancy tumor will develop by following good oral hygiene habits at home (brushing twice a day with a fluoride-containing toothpaste, flossing once a day, using an antimicrobial mouth rinse) during your pregnancy.

I thought this info might help.
