Death unlikely: A 9cm fibroid is unlikely to kill you. Its not a cancer. It can cause pain, heavy bleeding, Anemia, painful periods and other annoying symptoms. Treatment is usually done because of these symptoms. You can wait until the symptoms are bad enough to make you happy to get rid of them.

PCOS and fundal fibroid (2.0x1.8cm) Dr said it was high and wasn't a concern now months later Dr says it may need removed before I try fertility med?

Fibroids & fertility: Usually if the fibroid is just 2cm and isn't sitting along the lining of the uterus, it's not necessary for it to be removed. It would be helpful if you had the ultrasound report and the exact wording they used. The options are usually "subserosal", "intramural" or "submucosal". At 2 cm, usually just the submucosal type would need to be removed. ...Read more

If I will be undergoing myomectomy surgery -fundal fibroids (3), in my 30's, what is normal hb (hemoglobin)? Do I need blood transfusion?

About 12-16 g/dL.: Normal hemoglobin for an adult female is between 12-16 g/dl (7.4-9.9 mmol/l). You might need blood, like 2 units for your surgery to replace any blood lost. If you are anemic, which might be the case in these circumstances, you might need more. At any rate, your doctor, to prepare you for surgery might talk to you about autologous transfusion, or donating blood to yourself. Best of luck. ...Read more

I have a pedunculated right fundal subserosal fibroid 5.6 x 4.9 x 3.7 cm . Is this considered a nice size? An what are my options for removal?

Laparoscopy: Just because you have a fibroid does not mean that you need surgery. If it causes symptoms like pain, heavy bleeding, or infertility you may consider removal. If your provider is skilled in laparoscopy this could be as easy as an outpatient surgery for removal. If you decide not to have surgery then you should be followed on a regular basis. ...Read more

I'm 36 years old and my scan showed a fundal intramural fibroid measuring 35x28x32mm as well as endometrial polyps. Should I have both removed?

Maybe: If you are having symptoms of bleeding and or frequency in urination then they should be removed. If you are trying to conceive then you definitely need to have a discussion with your GYN too. You may not need surgery as you may be a candidate for other ways to remove fibroids other than surgery. Go to your doc. ...Read more
