DearCustomer
Hello.Uterine fibroids are considered to grow when estrogen levels are raised.Hence they normally shrink during and after menopause as the estradiol levels fall.However there may be some growths seen in early menopause and fibroids are seen in women aged 60-70 years .They are more common in black women than caucasian as also there is more likelihood in women whose mothers/sisters have had fibroids.There seems to be a genetic link.Hormone replacement therapy may encourage fibroids.

Can the fibroid cause pelvic pain if pressing on something. Someone said the pain would not come from fibroid because of age.
Health Professional: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 8 years ago
A uterine fibroid can cause pelvic pain depending on its location.If pressing on a nearby organ,it can cause pelvic pain.A CT Scan would be able to identify this.

had an abdominal ultrasound and transvaginal ultrasound
Health Professional: Vakul Aren, Doctor replied 8 years ago
That would identify any fibroid which would cause pelvic pain.If it was missed,a CT Scan would help.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
