You might be a good candidate for an endometrial ablation assuming you are done with having babies. ...Read more
Not necessarily.: Many, many women have fibroids as they get older. Most don't even know they have them.

Usually not: "cystic degeneration" usually means that a portion of the tumor has died as a result of its blood supply not always being adequate. If the tumor is troubling you, or if it is growing rapidly, or the radiologist has other concerns, you should consider having it removed or you may be given other options such as embolization. If there are other warnings of cancer, you must have it removed. Good luck. ...Read more

TVUSG report says: "Bulky uterus with small subserous fibroids. Thickened endometrium. Small cysts in ovaries." Period late by 15days. Please advice?
Depends: I think the small subserous fibroids are a non-issue. More like an incidental finding. The rest (thickened endometrium, small cysts in ovaries, late period) can all be explained with something like polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). If you are trying to conceive then you will likely need to see a physician for help with ovulation induction (using medications). Losing weight can also help. ...Read more
I have just been diagnosed with anteverted bulky uterus, anterior intramural, posterior intramural, fundal subserous & fundal pedunculated fibroid?
Are you symptomatic?: Sounds like you had pelvic us and reported the location of certain fibroids in the uterus. 3 locations: submucosal (central, against the uterine lining), intramural (in the muscular middle), and subserosal (outer, on the edge). Anterior (front) posterior(back). Fundal is top of the uterus. Pedunculated means it's on a stalk (but this term is often used to describe any fibroid away from uterus). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
