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

That : That is a very good question. Most women, after menopause, need more fiber in their diet, such as more fruit and vegetables, because their bowel motility slows. More calcium is needed as is vitamin d in order to prevent osteoporosis. Magnesium in your diet can prevent muscle cramping and also helps with slow bowel motility. Many women have problems with weight gain, so sticking with fruits/veggies/low fat diet can be helpful of course for that. ...Read more
