MRI tell exact location of a fibroid? Before surgery fibroid was on top of uterus during surgery found to be under cervix fibroid wasn't taken out

MRI tell exact location of a fibroid? Before surgery fibroid was on top of uterus during surgery found to be under cervix fibroid wasn't taken out

It should: An MRI will show exactly where fibroids are, and they will not move. It is likely, however, that you have more than one fibroid (most people who have them have multiple) and perhaps the fibroid near the cervix was not removed. It is hard to give a better answer to this question without seeing the actual images of the fibroids. ...Read more

Got a fibroid in cervix/ lower part of uterus. Was told may need hysterectomy. Also at risk for high complications if wait to have more children.True?

No hysterectomy: You have several options before you should ever consider a hysterectomy. There's a myomectomy to remove isolated fibroids, hifu (high frequency ultrasound), uterine fibroid embolization. You should definitely ask your doctor about these options. You only need treatment now if you are symptomatic. ...Read more

How can a fibroid get pushed through the cervix?

Intracavitary fibroi: A fibroid growing in the cavity of the uterus - intracavitary fibroid - while it's growing can get stretched and pushed (by uterus cramping) so that it actually comes out the cervix into the vagina. The fibroid can then be removed vaginally. ...Read more

I have a fibroid by my cervix , I am planning to get an abortion . Will this cause complications ?

I have a fibroid by my cervix , I am planning to get an abortion . Will this cause complications ?

IT depends on where: and how big the fibroid is. Fibroids are typically inside the uterus, so as you say it is by the cervix there is certainly a risk of immense bleeding if a trocar or instrument is inserted into your cervix, which will happen if there is any instrumentation associated with abortion procedure. I would be very careful in making sure the healthcare provider performing this procedure has a strategy. ...Read more

If I have a fibroid covering half of my cervix can I still get pregnant?

If I have a fibroid covering half of my cervix can I still get pregnant?

Probably: A fibroid that is covering part of your cervix is not likely to prevent pregnancy. However, it may increase your risk of pregnancy loss depending on the exact location and size. A fibroid can also grow during the course of a pregnancy and cause problems. Discuss specific treatment recommendations with your doctor. ...Read more

What causes bleeding from the cervix after menopause? US shows endometrial thickening of 8mm and no change in fibroids. Bleeding is from cervix.

What causes bleeding from the cervix after menopause? US shows endometrial thickening of 8mm and no change in fibroids. Bleeding is from cervix.

Bleeding: Polyps both endocervical and prolapsed endometrial polyps, cervicitis (inflammation from infection), cervical cancer are some of the causes. In your case I wouldn't expect to see an 8mm endometrium at age 60, so I'm concerned about possible hyperplasia. Trauma from sex can cause cervical and vaginal bleeding as well from atrophy. ...Read more

Going through menopause. T-vag says endo stripe is 0.4 cm, small post.Uterin fibroid 0.9cm, some benign nabothian cysts in cervix. Anything worrisome?

Going through menopause. T-vag says endo stripe is 0.4 cm, small post.Uterin fibroid 0.9cm, some benign nabothian cysts in cervix. Anything worrisome?

No worries.: A small uterine fibroid is usually asymptomatic and is not dangerous. A fibroid will usually shrink after menopause from decreasing estrogen levels. Your endometrial stripe is also normal. Nabothian cysts are also normal . None of these findings pose any risk to your health. ...Read more

Is it possible for fibroids to grow within a year? And could they possibly affect implantation and the lining of cervix? Does removing them an option for someone who has never conceived. And does it after chances of getting pregnant in the future?

Yes and Yes: Yes fibroids can grow quickly, even within a few months. If they grow toward the center or the lining of the uterus, they can affect implantation. They don't typically affect the cervix, but they can. Removing them is an option for someone trying to conceive. Typically removing fibroids that are preventing conception will result in increased fertility. See your physician and get tested. ...Read more

I found out I have a fibroid on my cervix, bled heavily with clots from may to oct. Took bc for 1 1/2 mo. No period in 4 mo. Why do I have mild cramp?

Fibtoid: You were bleeding, but then your extra hornones stopped that. The hormones thicken your endometrium and this prevents you from bleeding, but it causes you to cramp. Try motrin, but if fever or persistent cramping call your doctor. ...Read more

I have large fibroid 5mnth pregnant  look like .Gyn took pap smear and cervix  biopsy , what was the purpose of the samples taken out of from inside .?

Not related: The pap smear and cervical biopsy would not be related to the fibroid. A pap smear is done to detect precancerous cells on the cervix and prevent cervical cancer. A cervical biopsy is done because the pap smear was abnormal or because the doctor saw an abnormality there during the exam. Fibroids are very common benign uterine tumors. ...Read more
