See fibroid MD: Fibroids are benign tumors of the uterus that are hard/firm. They can press on adjacent structures to cause the symptoms that you are experiencing but this needs to be confirmed by physical exam and imaging (usually ultrasound but more precisely with MRI). Because these symptoms are non-specific and may or may not be fibroid related need to see fibroid expert to discuss/evaluate.
