What causes a cervical teratoma?

Nobody knows. It has never been linked to maternal lifestyle, so it is likely that there is nothing an expecting mother can do to prevent it.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
