Very low: A myoma is also called a fibroid. It is very rare to have a cancer develop in one of these, although it is possible. Up to 70% of women have myomas.

Doctor, recently it was found by usg that I have a sub serous myoma of size 70x 87 mm posteriorly in the fundal region.Can i conceive?

Yes: Fibroids are very common and the impact upon fertility depends upon both size and location. Sub serosal (pushing out) is best location as impact on fertility will be smaller. Fibroids can grow during pregnancy leading to complications like preterm labor. I personally hate fibroids and am very proactive at recommending their removal but it does require a surgery and obligates you to deliver by c-s.
