Heterogeneous Myometrium But No Discrete Fibroid Identified
Uterine fibroids are the most common pelvic tumor in women. 1 of every 3 women of child-bearing age have these tumors and up to 80% of african-american women have fibroids. They are often asymptomatic but they can also cause significant symptoms. It is the most common cause of heavy menstrual bleeding. Pelvic pain and increased urinary frequency ...Read more

Diffuse heterogeneity of the uterine myometrium w/o discrete mass sugg of adenomyosis and small fibroids pls explain the meaning of my US. WORRIED?
Adenomyosis: Your sonogram from what you have written is suggestive of adenomyosis. Women who have adenomyosis usually have pelvic pain chronically or severe pain just during their periods. Typical medications that women use to combat the pain are Motrin, Naprosyn, (naproxen) Alleve. There are birth control methods that can stop or decrease periods--Depo-Provera which can also be used to help with the pain. ...Read more
I am diagnosed with a Fibroid of size 13*9mm in the posterior myometrium in Ultrasound. Is there any cure for it??? Can I conceive a baby? Please help
Yes you can: Most uterine fibroids are benign muscle growths which can be anterior, posterior, lateral, inside the wall of your uterus, on its inner or its outer surface, ...and of varying sizes... If yours, which is fairly small, is not on the inside uterine lining, if it remains unchanged and you are healthy +asymptomatic your chances of getting pregnant and carrying your pregnancy to term are excellent ...Read more
My uterus measures 9.8 × 7 × 7.8. Inhomogeneous densities seen in the myometrium suggestivev a fibroid 1.7 cm in maximum diameter in the lower uterin?
My uterus contains a 6cm fibroid in the posterior myometrium. Does this mean it is inside the uterus — or in the wall of the uterus?
Not enough info ...: The myometrium is the muscular wall of the uterus so most or all of the fibroid is in the wall. Posterior means the back wall of your uterus as opposed to the front. A fibroid in the myometrium may be completely within the wall (intramural) or project into the inside cavity of the uterus (submucosal) or it may be just under the outer covering of the uterus (subserosal). Ultrasound or MRI can tell. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with 3 fibroids. On the lateral myometrium 44mm, on the uterine fundus 43mm and posterior myometrium 26mm. Will I be able to concieve?
Reassurance: Fibroids (leiomyomata) are very common in women in your age group. Current medical technology is unable to predict anyone's chances of conception. Fiborids can be associated with decreased fertility and increased complications of pregnancy, but the majority of women with fibroids will conceive successfully and have uncomplicated pregnancies. Good luck. ...Read more
What does this mean? "Fibroid uterus w/notable partially degenerated 1.7 cm
fibroid in myometrium of the right uterine cornua. Atrophic right ovary"
Interpretation: A fibroid is a smooth muscle growth in your right section at the top of your uterus next to the right Fallopian tube. It is in the process of "falling apart"(degenerating) which can cause bleeding and pain. The right ovary is shrunken (atrophic) which is common in post menopausal women. ...Read more

I have intra mural fibroid at fundal area of my uterus. Its size is 28mm. It's in anterior myometrium. Should I go for ufe treatment or some other?

My ultrasound says I have: fibroid/dub and the exam techs impression was that I have ut heterogeneous, what does that mean?
Need pelvic MRI: One of most common mistakes made on the interpretation of pelvic ultrasound is missing adenomyosis. I have seen countless women who have been misdiagnosed as having fibroids on ultrasound when instead they had adenomyosis. The tipoff to this is "ut heterogenous" adenomyosis has similar symptoms (pain, heavy menses) but treated a lttle differently. Pelvic MRI would settle this. You might have both. ...Read more
, i have an intramural fibroid measuring 5x6 CM and it shows heterogeneous enhancement. Can this be the cause of my infertility?
Post menopause break through bleeding. Ultra sound .61 cm endometrial stripe. Heterogeneous uterus with 2 small fibroids. Is D and C necessary?
Not always.: Anytime there is postmenopausal bleeding then a US evaluation of the uterine lining should be performed. If the endometrial stripe is more than 3-5 mm then an endometrial sample should be taken. This can usually be done in the office and does not require a D and C. Sometimes your doctor may want to insert a thin flexible camera into the uterus to further evaluate the lining. ...Read more
What is the treatment for adenomyosis, heterogeneous, and fibroids? My gyno put me on necon 1/32 last yr after surgery but obviously that's not working
Try embolization: There are many options for fibroids, but relatively few for adenomyosis. If hormonal therapies don't work the choices are limited. Hysterectomy is curative, but difficult to consider in a young woman. There is emerging evidence that embolization can provide good results for adenomyosis as well as fibroids and allow uterine preservation and at least a chance of fertility. ...Read more
What does an ultra sound that says normal uterus but very heterogeneous with a few poorly defined fibroids mean?
May mean adenomyosis: Difficult to say for sure. You should discuss findings with your doctor. I often see pelvic ultrasounds describe significant heterogeneity which is due to adenomyosis but called fibroids instead. They are both benign conditions and both cause similar symptoms (and you could even have both). A pelvic MRI is a good way to answer this but first talk to your doctor to explain the results. ...Read more

Uterine fibroids: Fibroids are common benign growths in the uterus. Some can cause pelvic pain, pressure and heavy periods. The size and location are important to determine treatment options. Your report indicates 3 large fibroids. Individual sonogram reports must be interpreted in the proper clinical context. Contact the ordering physician who can interpret it based on your symptoms. ...Read more

Endometrium ill-defined at fundus (9mm). Myometrium appears heterogeneous throughout suggestive of diffuse fibrotic changes. What does it mean?
Change: It means that you have some non-cancer fibrous change in the muscle coat of the uterus ...Read more
Heterogeneous: Heterogeneous myometrium means that the texture of the myometrium is not the same across the length of it. It is probably OK if no discrete lesion is seen. If there are symptoms that cannot be explained by it, it may be reasonable to have a follow up ultrasound in 3 months to see if there has been a change in the appearance. ...Read more

My uterus is heterogeneous and anteverted. 7.4cmx5.1 cmx3.3cm. Thickness 3mm. Heterogeneous myometrium without discrete abnormality. What's this mean?
Heterogeneous uterus: You do not have any discrete uterine fibroids which are benign growths of the muscle wall of the uterus but may have a condition called adenomyosis. This is when the lining of the uterus migrates into the muscle wall and can cause a soggy, boggy uterus that can cramp and bleed. At any rate, your report has nothing worrisome. ...Read more

Uterus measures 8.1 x 3.2 x 5.3 CM myometrium appears heterogeneous, 2 tiny echogenic foci seen anterior to endometrium. What's this mean?
Probable fibroids: This probably means that you have small fibroids. These are the most common tumors of the female reproductive tract and almost never are or become cancerous. You only worry about them when they cause symptoms. Adenomyosis (internal endometriosis) can cause heterogenaity but does not usually show up on ultrasound. ...Read more
Uterus is 14.1x5.3x7.5 CM with a 10 mm endometrial stripe. Myometrium is heterogeneous. Incidental nabothian cysts. Enlarged heterogeneous uterus. Define?
Fibroids: The muscle of your uterus looks irregular. While this can be due to endometriosis it is most frequently caused by small fibroids. This finding like all lab or x-ray findings is best understood in the context of your symptoms which led to the testing. Lacking that context and your medical history, it is difficult to say more. ...Read more
Uterus 60x40x45, myometrium is heterogeneous and there is hypoechoic region at the lower uterine segment. The endometrial stripe is measured at 10 mm.
Several causes: The first thing coming to mind with this info given your age is adenomyosis, a condition where uterine lining tissue is found throughout the wall of the uterus. Have you had MRI? This technique is good for diagnosis. Typically, the cure is hysterectomy. Endometriosis may also still be a factor, a condition where uterine lining tissue is found about the pelvis. Follow up with your GYN! ...Read more
