My fibroid uterusis 5.3cm with myomas in anterior wall and the ovaries are normal, what does that mean?

My fibroid uterusis 5.3cm with myomas in anterior wall and the ovaries are normal, what does that mean?

You have a fibroid!: Anyone can get a uterine fibroid, which is an overgrowth of muscle cells in the shape of a ball. Like moles on the skin, they come in different sizes/shapes; RARELY cancerous. You only need surgery if you have symptoms like pain/pressure/incontinence/bleeding/bloating. Size/location don't matter. Lupron (leuprolide) or embolization are ways to control w/out surgery. US follow up is very important. ...Read more

What can I do about the pain from an endometrial implant? It is located in the outter muscle (rectus sheath) in the lrq.

What can I do about the pain from an endometrial implant?  It is located in the outter muscle (rectus sheath) in the lrq.

Hormonal suppression: Continuous use of birth control pills can cause regression of endometrial implants; Lupron is extremely effective in shrinking /causing regression of endometrial implants, as is the Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) shot. Surgery would be an option if the lesion is easily identifiable, but without hormonal suppression, endometriosis can recur since hormone production stimulates it's production. ...Read more

Are there nerves inside the vagina that could be pinched and cause lower left abdominal pain?Internal sono seemed to relieve a lot of pain unsure how.

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?

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

What i want to know can a large amount of lipomas over the lumbar erector spinae groups cause excessive pelvic interior?

Unlikely: You notice a lot of lipomas. If you have pelvic interior lipoma it can be malignant. This will be a large liposarcoma. It can be seen on ct scan. They require removal. Lipomas on the back shouldn't cause interior pain. ...Read more

Will a anterior repair of vagina, actually make the vagina bigger? As you are lifting the prolapse?

Will a anterior repair of vagina, actually make the vagina bigger? As you are lifting the prolapse?

No: In an anterior repair the tissue that normally supports the bladder/anterior wall of the vagina is pulled back in to the midline to rebuild the support. Since tissue that has stretched out is brought in from the sides, it does not make the vagina bigger. If anything, it makes it smaller. Hope this helps. ...Read more

If I have a fibroid of 22mm on the back wall of the uterus and it is making the uterus slightly heart shaped will this affect a pregnancy?

If I have a fibroid of 22mm on the back wall of the uterus and it is making the uterus slightly heart shaped will this affect a pregnancy?

Probably not: A fibroid's effect on fertility is a long standing debate in gynecology. This is a relatively small fibroid and unless it is impinging and/or protruding into the uterine cavity, it will probably not effect a pregnancy. Pregnancy will, however, usually lead to increase in size of the fibroid due to the rise in estrogen that occurs. Fibroids respond to elevation in estrogen levels by growing. ...Read more

What could be the cause of my incontinence? Could it be the 2 large fibroids in my uterus, or the fact that I consume sodas regularly, or BOTH?

Incontinence: Urinary incontinence is a complex issue with multiple causes. Different causes have different treatments. The next step is to see a Urogynecologist. You can also see an Obgyn who treats incontinence or a Urologist who treats women. They will do a complete evaluation to determine the cause and offer various solutions. ...Read more

What can cause a 21cm mass in the uterus/abdomen in a 57 postmenopausal woman?

Long list: Including ovarian cysts/tumors, uterine fibroids, enlarged lymph nodes, and a host of other things. I would imagine that a ct scan would help narrow the possibilities down. If the mass was discovered by an imaging procedure then the radiologist would likely provide the most likely potential cause. ...Read more

F the fibroids are located in pelvis, will it interfere pregnancy? If not what is the effects of thse fibroids with the baby?

It depends: It depends on the size and location of the fibroid and how far you are in your pregnancy; most fibroid won't affect pregnancies; if they are inside the cavity of the uterus (submucosal), they can cause miscarriage in early pregnancies; if they are on the outer surface of the uterus (subserosal), they are unlikely to cause problems unless they are very large. ...Read more

Hi, 
 MRI say I have a coccyx infraction with  light tendonitis of the gluteus muscles.
Can it lead pain in the pelvic muscles and penis?

Yes: Infraction? Going with fracture, which can do what you describe, but, if the nerves to penis get damaged, it could cause erectile dysfunction. You should be being followed by a back surgeon--so should call and ask for advice. If not & can't get in to one (today), would say go to er @ larger hospital that would have one. Might get re-mri-ed, steroids and small chance for surgery to decompress. ...Read more
