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

Should fibroid be removed? I have had a large fibroid for 10 + years which I didn't have removed because it didn't cause symptoms. It has stabilized since going through menopause 2 years ago. Does it have to be removed?

Asymptomatic : Asymptomatic fibroids do not need surgery with few exceptions.
1. Growing after menopause. Remove because of risk of sarcoma. Sarcomas are very rare and grow rapidly. Pre-existing fibroids do not develop into sarcoma.
2. Blockage of the kidneys. This can occur without symptoms, and is detected by ultrasound of the kidneys, which can easily be done during pelvic ultrasound.
3. Blockage of blood low from the legs, usually if not always a symptom, since one leg will swell.
4. Patients at risk of ovarian cancer when the ovaries cannot be palpated on exam or seen on ultrasound. This is a soft call since it is not clear that pelvic exam or ultrasound detects ovarian cancer without symptoms, but I have saved a few women from advanced cancer by sticking to this rule. ...Read more

What are the difference in symptoms between endometriosis and fibroids?

Complicated: This is a complicated question to answer, but I'll give you some ideas. Fibroids are muscle tumors (benign) and when they are small, so long as they are not invading the lining of the uterus, typically don't cause any symptoms. As they grow they cause pain and pressure. If they invade the lining (even a little) they can cause bleeding abnormalities. Endo causes pain, cramping, irregular bleeding. ...Read more
