Very large fibroid

Hello Dr. Parker,

I get directed to your site every time I search for information on fibroids. I live in India, but I was hoping to get an opinion from you about the possibility of removal of my very large subserosal fibroid. On MRI it measures 12.3cm x 13cm. There are two small intramural fibroids (3 cm each).

I would be very obliged if you could give me some advice if the fibroids can be removed laparoscopically. I want to retain fertility and I am 32 years of age (unmarried).




Yes, this fibroid can be removed laparoscopically by an experienced laparoscopic surgeon.  One other fibroid is subserosal and could also be removed. Also see:

I hope this is helpful.
