Fibroids (Definition)

Uterine fibroids are the most common pelvic tumor in women. 1 of every 3 women of child-bearing age have these tumors and up to 80% of african-american women have fibroids. They are often asymptomatic but they can also cause significant symptoms. It is the most common cause of heavy menstrual bleeding. Pelvic pain and increased urinary frequency ...Read more

I have anterior intramural fibroid sized 1cm. Can this cause infertility? . I'm planning for second baby since 1 year. My AMH is 2.8 and HSG normal

Fibroid/ infertility: Small intramural fibroids such as you describe yours rarely interfere with fertility...women with fibroids very often have endometriosis, which often decreases fertility. Any unusual menstrual pain, sexual pain, or abnormal bleeding can be suggestive of problems.
I suggest you see a gyn specialist for further evaluation and a careful exam. ...Read more

Discuss w/ OBGYN: The Dr who Dx'd this needs to plan treatment options with you and answer your questions. I have heard of a successful birth in a siilar case, but clearly this is a challenge. They ust know that you wish to be informed and hope it will be safe for the baby and you. BTW, I'm assuming you are pregnant, not a new Mom. ...Read more

Is it possible to get pregnant with an 0.8cm anterior intramural fibroid? And if removed will there be an effect?

Is it possible to get pregnant with an 0.8cm anterior intramural fibroid? And if removed will there be an effect?

Yes, don't remove it: 0.8cm or 8mm is a very tiny fibroid. This won't interfere with pregnancy and it should not be removed. ...Read more

Transvaginal scan done 7th day of cycle. Endometrium was 14mm. Anterior intramural fibroid nodule 4.9 X 4.5cm... trying to get pregnant 18months.?

Fertility evaluation: If you have been trying to get pregnant for over 12 months without success then an evaluation is needed. Ovulation testing, a semen analysis and an Xray to make sure the tubes are open are the 3 basic tests that should be done to start. You can check with your doctor to see if they feel the fibroid is impacting your fertility as well. ...Read more

Sonohystogram: If you have been trying for 18 months then it is time to get help. Since you have a known fibroid consider asking for a specialized sonogram called a sonohystogram. This would allow the doctor to determine if the fibroid is interfering with endometrial cavity. ...Read more

I am a 25 yrs aged lady I have anterior wall intramural fibroid measuring 1.1*1.2 cm is it a danger one? Is it any problem for pregenency?

Very small: Uterine fibroids are very common. A 1 cm fibroid is so tiny it is not likely to cause symptoms or problems. Of course individual cases must be addressed one on one with your doctor. ...Read more

Had vaginal ultrasound 1 year ago. Was diagnosis with a intramural anterior-mid uterine fibroid. It was 1.04cm length, 1.17cm width, 1.16cm depth. Will this cause issues? Do they usually grow bigger quickly?

Maybe: Only about half of women with fibroids have any symptoms (abnormal bleeding, pressure symptoms). If a woman has no symptoms from her fibroids, no treatment is necessary. Fibroids can grow as women approach menopause. Growth in and of itself is not necessarily an indication of a problem. ...Read more

The 5.2 x 3.7 cm Fibroid- left sided intramural, 7.1 x 5.7 cm is Fundal and 6.8 cm - anterior submucosal fibroids, what are my options? I am 26

The 5.2 x 3.7 cm Fibroid- left sided intramural, 7.1 x 5.7 cm is Fundal and 6.8 cm - anterior submucosal fibroids, what are my options? I am 26

Depends on symptoms: Your options depend upon whether, or not you are experiencing symptoms like bleeding and pain. It also is dependent upon whether you presently have or plan children. Options include, doing nothing and following any growth, focused ultrasound, myomectomy, GnRh agonists for temporary shrinkage pre-op, and finally uterine removal (hysterectomy). Consult with your GYN MD about the above. ...Read more

My transvaginal scan shows endometrium ill defind 5mm with calcification and a 12x9mm intramural fibroid within anterior myometrium? Can you explain

Yes...: You had a sonographic imaging of your uterus which shows a probably normal endometrial lining and a small usually benign muscle growth of the wall of your uterus called a fibroid. You have very little to get alarmed about. ...Read more

I have just been diagnosed with anteverted bulky uterus, anterior intramural, posterior intramural, fundal subserous & fundal pedunculated fibroid?

Are you symptomatic?: Sounds like you had pelvic us and reported the location of certain fibroids in the uterus. 3 locations: submucosal (central, against the uterine lining), intramural (in the muscular middle), and subserosal (outer, on the edge). Anterior (front) posterior (back). Fundal is top of the uterus. Pedunculated means it's on a stalk (but this term is often used to describe any fibroid away from uterus). ...Read more

32yrs, 4wks preg, 2mm intramural fibroid. I want to terminate coz not ready. Risks?

No concern: The biggest concern I would have for you is carrying an unwanted pregnancy. The risks to you for carrying an undesired pregnancy are FAR greater than the risks of termination, regardless of fibroids. Even then, your fibroid is the size of a grain of rice, which would not concern me. Even if the fibroid is 2cm, it still would not be increase your risk related to pregnancy termination. ...Read more

(question got cut off) new 1.1cm intramural fibroid, told repeat u/s in 4 months. Why is this important since fibroids r so common & a benign finding?

Fibroids: I am not sure why you were suggested to have ultrasound repeated. I would assume that there may have been either incomplete visualization or the radiologist wanted to make sure it is not something else. Talk to the ordering doc and ask him that question. He may contact the radiologist and ask him directly. ...Read more

Had D&C@19 weeks. Bleeding stopped @ 2weeks but continue to pass clots every 3/4 days @1perday this is @8weeks. Intramural fibroid present. Normal?

Not normal: Your pattern of irregular prolonged uterine bleeding is not normal and will require a careful and complete evaluation by a gynecologist who can arrive at a diagnosis or possibly additional diagnoses to your "intramural fibroid". ..and offer you some treatment options. ...Read more

39yo with intramural posterior fibroids, largest vs 2 adj fibroids 9 cm max diameter. Recommendations? No longer having children, unbearable symptoms

Time to grow & go: Fibroids, if left alone, will continue to grow and exacerbate your already "unbearable" symptoms. You need to talk to a GYN MD about surgical removal of the fibroids alone (myomectomy) or the uterus itself containing the fibroids. (hysterectomy). ...Read more

, I have a intramural fibroid measuring 5x6 CM and it shows heterogeneous enhancement. Can this be the cause of my infertility?

Maybe: Most fibroids are not a problem. The location of the fibroid is more important than its size. If the fibroid distorts the cavity or involves the lining (endometrium) it may be associated with reduced fertility. See a fertility specialist if you are concerned. ...Read more

4 very early m/c. 3 intramural fibroids, largest 3.4cm. Can intramural fibroids smaller than 5cm cause very early recurrent miscarriages?

Yes: Yes, but only if they distort the endometrial cavity. A sonohysterogram or hsg could help figure this out, and if affecting the uterus a myomectomy is very effective restoring you anatomy and reducing your risk for miscarriage. ...Read more

I tested to have hypoechoic intramural fibroid. Measing 49mmX48mm nd 39mmX38mm right lateral going subserous, can it cause sharp pain on my left side?

Unusual: It is unusual for a fibroid that size and in that location to cause pain unless it is growing rapidly and out growing its blood supply which can happen in pregnancy and it would usually cause pain on the side where it is located. This is not to say it isn't possible, but I'd suggest being sure there isn't another cause for the pain before deciding it is due to the fibroid. ...Read more

Hi, I'm 35 years old married, they diagnosed that I have left lateral wall intramural fibroid of size 19 - 15 mm is it dangerous do I need to remove?

Fibroid: Typically fibroid of that size that is intramural is not worthy of removal. Depends if it extends into the cavity and is causing heavy bleeding. If it is not bothering you, it is not causing miscarriages, then I would leave it alone and have an ultrasound every year or two as they do seem to grow over time. ...Read more

Dr. Actually I have one quetion my sis have multiple fibroids in intramural of uterus she had operated allready and again occured subserosal?

Can't Get Them All: Myomectomies targets the largest fibroids or the ones felt to cause pain, bleeding, or infertility. It's not possible to remove all of them or see them all so they can grow and cause similar problems to what caused the first surgery. If they don't cause problems, leave them. If done with childbearing, hyster; if desire children, have at it or shrink them with lupron (leuprolide). It's a good topic to d/w gyn. ...Read more

I'm 36 years old and my scan showed a fundal intramural fibroid measuring 35x28x32mm as well as endometrial polyps. Should I have both removed?

Maybe: If you are having symptoms of bleeding and or frequency in urination then they should be removed. If you are trying to conceive then you definitely need to have a discussion with your GYN too. You may not need surgery as you may be a candidate for other ways to remove fibroids other than surgery. Go to your doc. ...Read more

Myomettrium is of a coarse echotexture consistent with diffuse fibrotic changes. An11 mm calcified posterior intramural fibroid noted. Please explain?

Fibroid Uterus: Fibroids are benign smooth muscle tumors aka leiomyomas which are extremely common. I would guess that more than 50% of women over 50 years old have them. They can infarct and become calcified and very rarely cause abnormal bleeding or trouble conceiving but most often they don't cause symptoms. They can be located in the subserosal, sub mucosal or myometrial location. ...Read more

Possible: Anything like a fibroid can potentially lead to postpartum bleeding. It is hard to give a percentage as there are so many variables. Your doctor has a number of techniques and medicines available in case this happens. ...Read more

Diag with "1.2cm posterior intramural body fibroid abutting the endometrial stripe." isn't what was described actually a submucous fibroid? Confused.

You need the images: It could be close to the stripe, but have a small amount of intervening muscle. This would make it intramural. If there is no intervening muscle, then it would be submucosal. ...Read more
