What is a myometrial mass? It is dangerous? Does it have to be removed?

Hi,

Welcome to JustAnswer!

Uterus has three layers- endometrium, myometrium and perimetrium.

A mass in the middle layer is what you are mentioning.

It could be a fibroid. It can cause pain , bleeding and infertility. It has to be removed if symptomatic.

I had an MRI that shows two myometrial masses.   I am taking birth control to control the bleeding and feel fine. How do I know for sure that the masses are fibroids? Will my doctor know by just reading the MRI results? Do the masses have to be removed to be know for sure they are not malignant. The MRI said that they did not look to be malignant.

MRi will show whether it is fibroid.

The one in the myometrium has got more chances of becoming malignant.

malignancy may be als be diagnsoed with MRI.

Since MRI does not show any malignant changes, no need to worry.

But since malignant transformation and other complications can occur, it has to be removed.
