What symptoms?: Simple ovarian cysts are benign. Premenopausal women produce cysts every month, some grow larger, and can cause pain or other symptoms. Fibroids are benign smooth muscle growths (tumors) that can cause symptoms, and if near the inner uterine lining , can have a negative effect on fertility or increase miscarriage rates. Please discuss your concerns and these findings with your ob/gyn.
