Chickweed (Stellaria media) has secret dissolving powers. Ovarian cysts, dermoid cysts, lumps in the breast and elsewhere can't hold their own against her slippery ways when a dropperful (1 ml) is taken 4-5 times a day, persistently, for many months.

A close-up view of the right lower quadrant from a conventional radiograph of the abdomen and pelvis shows a cystic mass with a rim-like calcification (red arrows) containing fat density lower than that of the surrounding soft tissue. There is a calcification within the mass (blue arrow) which represents a tooth. This is a diagnostic appappearance for a dermoid cyst of the ovary.
Ovarian dermoid cyst and mature cystic teratoma are terms often used interchangeably to refer to the most common ovarian neoplasm. May show calcific and tooth components with the pelvis. Read more: http://radiopaedia.org/articles/ovarian-dermoid-cyst
Ruptured dermoid cyst. High T1 signal material is floating on CSF in the anterior horns of the lateral ventricles (blue arrows), and multiple small droplets of T1 hyperintense material can be seen in the subarachnoid space of both hemispheres (yellow arrows). http://radiopaedia.org/articles/intracranial-dermoid-cyst-1
- Ultrasound features of dermoid cysts. (A) Rokitansky nodule with a strong acoustic shadow. (B) Acoustic shadows and bright echoes representing hair in the cyst. (C) Unusual but interesting presentation of a dermoid cyst which has been described as ‘floating balls’ - secondary to hyperechoic intracystic fat balls.
