11 cm. fibroid: A "fibroid" of the womb measuring "11 cm." is a significant size, and if already "degenerating" may actually continue to shrink even without medication. Degeneration implies that the fibroid has a deficient supply of blood. To be certain, a repeat ultrasound in a few months will guide further treatment. Consult your doctor for followup.
