What`s the best treatment for :Exophytic Fibroid at the Fundus of the Uterus measuring 5.0 x 4.4 x 4.4??Thanks

Best: If you are 45 years old and the fibroid is not causing problems with bleeding/pressure, the best treatment is probably to do nothing. If its causing symptoms consider hysterectomy, UFE, or possibly myomectomy. If you are not 45 years old - you should always give your correct age - it would depend on whether you have wishes for pregnancy in the future. ...Read more

29 y/o f w/ 2 exophytic subserosal uterine fibroids on the right side of the pelvis. Anterior 6.5 x 5.9 x 7.3 cm; posterior: 10.3 x9.1x 9 cm.Surgery?

That depends: On if you are done having children, or would still like the option to try. Those are pretty big measurements, and could possibly complicate every aspect of pregnancy.They can also keep growing--sometimes very quickly and can get quite large. You are close to the threshold of being able to do a vaginal hysterectomy at all.Wait too much longer, and you might have no choice but abdominal. Talk to doc. ...Read more

Mri shows multiple exophytic mid posterior uterine fibroids one 5.8cm & another 2.3cm; a large simple 5cm cyst on l ovary w/many sm. Marginal cysts; & mild free l pelvic fluid. Treatment & concerns?

See a specialist: You have multiple fibroids and the treatment options are complicated. You need to discuss these findings with the doctor who ordered the mri. The ovarian cyst is fairly large but if simple then it may resolve on its own. If you have surgery for the fibroids then the surgeon can deal with the cyst also. This is not an internet question with only 400 character answers! :) best wishes. ...Read more

What is a exophytic subserosal pedunculated fibroid and what are the treatments?

Position: It describes the position of the fibroid (a non-cancerous tumor). It is on the outside of the uterus, hanging off the uterus by a "cord" or stalk. Depending on the thickness of the stalk, you could have fibroid embolization, and/or hysterectomy is still an option. ...Read more

I have one subserosal exophytic posterior fibroid of 1.7x0.9 cms fibroid , 26+ old, no clildren, do I need to worry, is it curable through medicine.

No & no: That size and location isn't worrisome. But 26 is a bit young for having these common tumors. About 50% of older women have them. They aren't curable with medication. If they get big or cause symptoms, they can be surgically removed. In some situations there are other treatment options but only after childbearing is completed. Most cause no trouble and shrink later in life on their own. ...Read more

Severe Round ligament pain for 3months. not pregnant. Ultra sound yesterday showed fibroids. Can fibroids cause RLP? Maybe endometriosis ?

Severe Round ligament pain for 3months. not pregnant. Ultra sound yesterday showed fibroids. Can fibroids cause RLP? Maybe endometriosis ?

Yes: Fibroids can even involve the round ligament, although more likely to have exophytic fibroids growing away from uterus on the side of your pain. MRI shows fibroids to much better detail than ultrasound. Fibroid-related pain is typically worse right before or during menses. Consider consultation with experienced Interventional Radiologist who could discuss whether or not you're a candidate for UFE. ...Read more

What is the curse of fibroid?

What is the curse of fibroid?

Fibroid=pelvic pain: Fibroid tumors (uterus muscle tumors) are a common cause of pelvic pain. Location of fibroids also contribute to the many symptoms they cause. If a fibroid is near the cervix, dyspaurenia (painful sex) may occur. Fibroids near the lining of the uterus cause increased vaginal bleeding during periods and decreased fertility.
