U/S rpt:"Enlarged uterus lobulated contour&multiple uterine fibroids. LargestFibroids@uterine fundus' posterior wall&left fundal wall 3.1cm.Endometrial thickness normal,ovaries obscured byOverlying bowel gas" Any tests/scan/type of surgery recommend?

Fibroids: Are relatively common, and if you are not having any symptoms related to them, probably nothing needs to be done. It sounds like you had a transabdominal ultrasound and your ovaries could not be seen due to bowel gas. This happens occasionally. If your doctor wants to check your ovaries, you need to have a transvaginal ultrasound. If the ovaries are still difficult to see, MRI might be useful. ...Read more

However, you're also at the age when ovarian dysfunction often causes irregular, heavy and/or prolonged bleeding. You might be a good candidate for an endometrial ablation assuming you are done with having babies. ...Read more

Is uterine fibroid with cystic degeneration cancerous?

If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

Can uterine fibroids turn into cancer?

No: The medical term for fibroids is leiomyomata. They are benign tumors that arise from smooth muscle cells; they do not become cancerous. The cancerous counterpart is called leiomyosarcoma.

Uterine tumors that enlarge quickly should be evaluated and possibly removed. ...Read more
