fibroids: Should I be concerned?
Tue, 04-22-2014 - 8:36pm


I recently went to by obgyn and got this report:
there is a fundal midline anterior fibroid. there are nabothian cysts within the cervix. there is nonvisualization of the right ovary.

the fibroid is rather large and I am going to a specialist to see what can be done. 
But I would like to know if this could hurt me? I am not even 30 yrs old and this happens usually with 30-50 yr old women.
In July, I will be getting married and I am just freaking out. I do not want anything HORRIBLE to happen to me. This is just not fair.

Sorry for the rather slow reply. Welcome!

The cysts are almost certainly nothing to worry about. They are common, usually go away on their own, and are considered harmless.

Most fibroids don't cause much of a problem, but since you are so young I am sure that is why your doctor is sending you to a specialist. It is good that you are getting it checked out.
