Can a calcified fibroid be removed by hysteroscopic myomectmy? Is it harder to remove then a regular fibroid?

Yes it can: A calcified fibroid can be more dense and hard than other fibroids. If the fibroid is inside the lining of the uterus then a hysteroscopic myomectomy is possible. There is a great procedure called myosure which makes this a fairly easy procedure in experienced hands. In this picture c and d would be perfect for a myosure. ...Read more

What is the best method to address a calcified fibroid tumor that is causing frequent urination and bowel movement issues?

Hysterectomy: I'm going to assume this is a common calcified leiomyoma / fibroid of the uterus and that it's falling forward onto the bladder causing urinary urgency and pushing backward onto the bowel and causing constipation. These calcified tumors are unlikely to regress at menopause and elective hysterectomy might be a reasonable option if your physician is good with it. ...Read more

More information: More information is needed to adequately address your question. Complex ovarian masses in 31 year olds, are typically benign, but your doctor knows your history and can give you expert opinion on that mass. Calcification of fibroids is normal and is not a sign of malignancy. Fibroids can be inside of uterus and on outside of uterus, location can affect fertility, bleeding and pain. Good luck! ...Read more

They can be located in the subserosal, sub mucosal or myometrial location. ...Read more

Local consult a must: Whether or not you need to do anything depends on where this is located. If it intrudes or would intrude on the womb during pregnancy or interfere with getting pregnant will influence the need.Removal may or may not be realistic and the recovery period before considering pregnancy is also something only your local docs can decide. ...Read more
