Small Fibroid Noticed On Ultrasound..

I'm wondering whether anyone can help / advise / share their own experiences.

I have being having vague abdominal pains for about 7 weeks now. I went to the doctor about 5 weeks ago and he arranged for me to have an ultrasound scan, which I had last week...

Anyway, the doctor doing the scan said he couldn't see anything, except for a small fibroid, which was '2cm' (not sure whether this means 2cm across or 2cm deep!)...Anyway, he didn't express any worry about this at all, but I am still getting these vague pains! I am wondering whether such a small fibroid could cause this pain, or whether something else might be amiss! I have a routine follow up appointment in a couple of weeks...I am also going to be on holiday from work in a few weeks and want to be 100% fit and healthy to enjoy my break!

Anyone had similar?

Re: Small Fibroid Noticed On Ultrasound..

Hi, fibroids are so common that they are considered almost as a normal variation. They only matter if they cause symptoms- most women have fibroids and dont know it. A small fibroid is very unlikely to cause problems. Hope you get to the bottom of your problem soon, Angela.
