Fibroids Inside and Outside of the Uterus

June 19th, 2010

I was recently told by my doctor that I have fibroids inside and outside of my uterus. I have an appointment coming up where she will discuss my treatment options with me.  My question is in regards to the effects of fibroids.  I have been experiencing nausea for some time now.  Is this common?

There are several complications that may arise with the presence of fibroidsCommon symptoms include heavy bleeding, bloating, pain in the lower back, urinary incontinence, etc.  With fibroids that are “outside of your uterus”, called pedunculated fibroids, additional symptoms can come about.  Because pedunculated fibroids consist of a fibroid that is connected to your uterus by a stem,  they  may twist and can cause pain, nausea, or fever.

Pedunculated fibroids consist of two general types: subserosal and submucosalSubserosal fibroids are located underneath the mucosal (peritoneal) surface of the uterus and can become very large. These pedunculated growths can actually detach from the uterus to become a parasitic leiomyoma. Submucosal fibroids are located in the muscle beneath the endometrium of the uterus and distort the uterine cavity. A pedunculated lesion within the cavity is termed an intracavitary fibroid and can be passed through the cervix which can inevitably cause pain and pressure during sex.
Left untreated, fibroid tumors and their associated symptoms can cause health risks and complications in the future. If you think that you have any of the above or other symptoms of fibroids contact your primary care provider or OB/Gyn as soon as possible.
