What are uterine fibroids?

Uterine fibroids (also referred to as myoma, leiomyoma, leiomyomata, and fibromyoma) are benign (non-cancerous) tumors that grow within the muscle tissue of the uterus. Between 20-50% of women of childbearing age have uterine fibroids. While many women do not experience any problems, symptoms can be severe enough to require treatment.

Fibroids range in size from very small (coin sized) to larger than a melon. A very large uterine fibroid can cause the uterus to expand to the size of a six or seven-month pregnancy. There can either be one dominant fibroid or a cluster of many small fibroids.

What are common symptoms of uterine fibroids?

  • Very heavy and prolonged menstrual periods
  • Pain in the back of the legs
  • Pelvic pain or pressure
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Pressure on the bladder which leads to a constant need to urinate, incontinence, or the inability to empty the bladder
  • Pressure on the bowel which can lead to constipation and/or bloating
  • An enlarged abdomen which may be mistaken for weight gain or pregnancy

How do I know if I have uterine fibroids?

During a visit to investigate these symptoms, your doctor will check the size of your uterus. If it feels enlarged, your doctor may order an ultrasound or a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) session, which can confirm the presence, location and size of fibroids. After identifying the size and location of your fibroid(s), and possibly after other diagnostic tests, your doctor may be able to rule out other potentially more serious conditions, and advise you of your options and a recommended course of treatment for the fibroids. If you do not notice any symptoms caused by fibroids there is no need to treat them. Your doctor may want to watch them and check for any growth.

  3. QUESTION:
    I have had four ultrasound scans in 2 years and results, normal uterus, cysts, normal, fibroid is this normal
    Up until late 2004 my uterus was normal. Then I started having irregular periods, I think I miscarried and some pregnancy symptoms didn’t immediately disappear, I went to see a radiologist a few months later, he said I had functional cyst and referred me to a gynaecologist, the doctor did a thorought test and repeat scan and found my uterus perfectly normal, my periods stabilised and for some seven months didn’t have sex. Then I started having sex again, the last time my period was late by a cycle, and like the last time I started spotting when it returned. I decided it will get back to normal on its own… but when I had a bout of severe back pain I got worried and went to see a doctor (a different one…. he sent me for scanning and the result; “2.7cm x 2cm single fibroid, no fluid aroud the pouch of Douglas.” What is the meaning of this – Why did he mention this pouch of douglas? Can the fibroid go away the way the cyst went away or could there have been an error here?

    • ANSWER:
      the fibroid is not going to go away but it is nothing to be worried about either. fibroids are bening tumors of the muscle cells of the uterus and about 50% of women will develop them. Yours is small and you only have one, nothing much to be concerned about unless it is in the lining of your uterus and then it can cause spotting, but usually a small fibroid like this will not cause much problems at all. Just ignore the remark about the pouch of douglas, that is not significant to any of your issues. they usually mention whether there is or is not fluid in the pelvis-this fluid collects in an area called the pouch of douglas- it has nothing to do with your fibroid or periods. you may want to think about the pill to control your periods if they are bothering you.

  4. QUESTION:
    Large partially pedunculated fibroid leiomyoma 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 of the anterior uterus… HELP?
    In a way I can tell I’m blessed why? In 2008 I used to blame myself and others who caused a car accident that I was in. I lost so much after that accident not being able to have the very good health and physic I used to have. From 162 no I weight 210. I went to so many doctors after my accident because my neck and back was really in pain. I finally found a doctor who did thank lord give me hope that everything could go back to normal. Until the other day my chiropractors to finish my treatment cause my insurance almost with no balance, he told me that he will MRI my back. When they did they found and confirmed that I had a herniated disc L5-S1 that this accident had make worst because a previous chiropractor told me I had a disc problem before 3 days before the accident etc… But that MRI for my back shows a growing mass inside my pelvic. They send me for a pelvic ultrasound. Also the days of the MRI my tummy to the right side move so much that was crazy and I was extremely dizzy. Result came like that:

    Finding: utilizing a full urinary bladder as an acoustic window, the pelvis was evaluated and the uterus is in a normal anteverted/anteflexed orientation measuring 8.4 x 9.8 x 8.0 cm. The uterus contains a very large anterior complex leiomyoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 cm. The right and left adnexa are normal. There is no free fluid within the cul-de-sac.

    Impression: There is a large soft tissue mass involving the anterior uterus almost certainly representing a large partially pedunculated leiomymoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6x 9.7 cm. This is an otherwise normal study.

    • ANSWER:
      Fibroids are clumps of uterine extra tissue overgrowths, some do not cause any discomfort and the ones that are larger and that will need to be surgically removed through an incision like a c-section to basically go into the uterus . If you are 26 years old, and want children, make sure that they leave your ovaries, tubes and uterus intact and NOT TO REMOVE THEM and only remove the fibroids. However, if your doctor suggests that something be removed so the fibroids don’t come back and start growing again? Ask him what your options are. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor all the questions you have. Make a short list and take it with you to your appointment. Be ready with some questions.

      You will be OK. Have faith, and speak to someone at Social Security and start some benefits, you need to speak to a counselor, a dietician, and you need alot of support, emotional and medically. And try to have someone with you all the time, because you shouldn’t be alone in this.
