I am a 60 yr female. I just had an ultrasound of my uterus

Customer Question

Hi I am a 60 yr female. I just had an ultrasound of my uterus due to some bleeding and they saw a cluster of graped sized growths. They did a biopsy and I'm awaiting the results. I am a little nervous though.

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Hi.
Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 7 months ago.

These are most likely fibroid tumors.

They are benign.

In fact the biopsy is likely to be routine.

What leads you to think they are benign?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 7 months ago.

Because statistically that is the highest likelihood.

Only the biopsy will make sure.
