    Hi , my understanding is that fibroids sometimes do have cancer cells in the very heart of it but that does not make it cancer. Really do your research. Good luck.

      Thanks julie,

      They are sent for the second opinion now.

      Some signs of cancerous cells have been found in my fibroid.Doctor said its very rare but it can happen 1 in 1000 women.

      I am just so in depression now till the reasult from.the second lab came.

    Hi Rabia.

    How was your myomectomy? Sorry you have pain. I haven't had that procedure done. I have fibroids. Oh gosh I really hope that your fibroids doesn't have cancerous cells in it. Sorry you are feeling depressed. I have been given options to treat fibroids but don't feel I have had much advice about it. Rachel.
