  Uterine fibroid - Case scenarios and Discussion 1. UTERINE FIBROID CASE SCENARIOS & DISCUSSION By Dr. K. Haynes Raja, Junior Resident, Rajah Muthiah Medical College & Hospital, Annamalai University. 2. Uterine Fibroids. Uterine fibroids are benign lumps that grow on the uterus. Symptoms may include heavy periods, cramping, painful sex, and an urge to urinate. Uterine Fibroids vs. Ovarian Cancer. Uterine fibroids and ovarian cancer share many of the same symptoms. Doctors recommend an exam if symptoms occur for two weeks or more. In most instances, a regular pelvic exam can detect fibroids or tumors. However, ultrasounds are often used to confirm the diagnosis. Treatment for Uterine Fibroids and.   Introduction. Uterine tumors infrequently demonstrate sex cord-like features. In the landmark publication by Clement and Scully in [], 14 cases of uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex cord tumors (UTROSCT) were described as follows: group I tumors represented well-recognized endometrial stromal tumor with focal sex cord-like features, and group II tumors consisted mainly of Cited by:

  Read here to learn more about fibroids in the ovaries and other parts of the uterus and whether UFE is an effective form of treatment.. I have heard that there can be fibroids in the ovaries. Can these be treated by UFE? No. The blood vessels to these ligaments and the ovaries are different from the ones which supply the uterus. Had a CT done told I have one 22cm fibroid tumor on uterus about a month later had transvaginal ultrasound and to more Had a CT done told I have one 22cm fibroid tumor on uterus about a month later had transvaginal ultrasound and told it was multiple tumors about 9 CM is this possible? In no pain should I . I suspected an ovarian cyst because I've had them before but a sonogram showed a cm fibroid a month ago. Could it grow in a month to cause more pain?

I'm still playing the waiting game and I just wanted to know if anyone could tell me the difference between a fibroid mass, endometrial mass, or just a tumor either benign or malignant. My tumor is on the outside of the uterus and appears to be attached to the ovary but .

Uterine tumors resembling ovarian sex cord tumors (UTROSCT) are rare neoplasms of unknown etiology. Only 67 cases have been reported in the literature, to our knowledge, so far. Uterine fibroids are common, benign tumors that cause considerable morbidity. Insights into the biologic and genetic mechanisms underlying these tumors at the cellular level are pointing the way.   It is impossible to know if an ovarian growth is benign with % accuracy. However, they can usually tell if a growth is likely to be cancer or not from the ultrasound as ovarian cancer gives a fairly reliable pattern on the ultrasound. Even with that, ovarian tumours are more often benign than cancerous. I just got back from having my ultrasound which shows a small fibroid I think 9 MM. My history is that my mother died of stage 4 ovarian cancer in she had a tumor the size of a honeydew melon, she was in her 60's. I had 3 fibroid's removed with a D&C in , that doctor who was my mothers doctor retired before I could get my records.
