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.

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

I've been told I hv a complex ovarian cyst and multiple fibroids some of which r calcified. D fibroids r inside and outside my uterus. Should I worry?
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.

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

What is causing all my calcifications? In the breast, neck, fibroids (had hyst,)now need spleen removed because of calcification on it
I've spotted since Oct '14 I have strip of uterus filled with tiny fibroids showing on Ultrasounds, but CT scan says there is no calcification.?
Ultrasound: Is more sensitive at detecting small noncalcified fibroids than CT, and it is very common to see small fibroids on ultrasound, which are not visible on CT. When fibroids calcify they are easy to see on CT. But many fibroids, particularly small ones, have no calcification. ...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
