Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 32-year-old woman. My latest pelvic IRM imaging showed that I have a 1.5 inches subserosal fibroid that is undergoing myxoid necrobiosis. My question is: Does this type of fibroid need to be removed? If yes, does the surgery have any risks for the uterine? Is it fine to get pregnant while having this fibroid?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Fibroid in pregnancy may be increased in size and can hamper baby growth by occupying space. Subserosal fibroid does not affect conception but in your case, it is undergoing degeneration. This is a problematic part. Red degeneration is a fibroid degeneration in pregnancy which causes severe abdominal pain throughout pregnancy and surgery cannot be done. So I would suggest getting it removed. Subserosal fibroid removal has generally no effect on the uterus. But if it is deeply situated then uterus wall may become weak.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
