    Vaginal Fibroids?...

    Advertisements



    In January 2003 I had a polyp removed from my cervix while I was 3 months pregnant, then in September 2004 I was diagnosed with a fibroid tumour in my uterus, and Ovarian Polysistic Syndrome, for which I had surgery on both at the same time.
    Now I have noticed some growths that look like polyps just inside my vagina. If they are fibroids or polyps, could there be a connection to everything else that has happend in the past? Reason that I am posting this instead of out-right going to a doc is that I am currently lining in Portugal, and I have to wait for a month before I get to be examined... by the way, my other situations occured while I was living in the States...

    Thank you for your time.

    Probaby Fibroids

    I don't think you have to rush, but make the appointment now to go to the doctor. It sounds like you have vaginal fibroids. These are pretty rare, but fibroids can recur and since you have a history of them already,that is likely what you are dealing with. The good news is that people can live with fibroids for awhile, only becoming a problem when they become physically bothersome, so you have plenty of time to schedule an appointment without rushing (unless, of course, they bother you.) The bad news is that once in awhile they can occasionally have some precancerous cells assoiated with them.
    I was diagnosed with vaginal fibroids several years ago and had them removed. There isn't much info out there on them at all (mainly just the uterine fibroids). Once diagnosed, however, a doc will usually keep an eye out in the years ahead to see if they recur, particularly if the cells involved were precancerous like mine were.
    By the way, I ran across your question while searching for info on "vaginal fibroids" because I am now pregnant and afraid that the scar tissue from the surgery will interfere with vaginal delivery (resulting in cesaerian section). Not much luck on getting more info, though - there just aren't enough studies on them!
    Good luck!

    This is probably not the appropriate place to seek or give medical advice.
