Hi - have any of you had experiences with this:
I've had a fibroid for years, that I have not noticed at all, as it sits outside the uterus. I january I got pregnant, but had a missed abortion, and hence an surgial abortion at the hospital. Here they found a rather large 'thing' at the outside, where my fibrome used to be. Because it has been growing fast (from 5 to 11 cm), they worry it might be cancer, and I am now going through a cancerprogramme in order to diagnose it.
My problem now is, that the doctors say that the only way to be sure wether its cancer or not, is to remove the fibroid as well as my uterus. As far as I am concerned it can very well 'just' be the fibroid which has qrown fast, because of the pregnancy and the estrogen-stimulation (which a lot of fibroms tend to do). The doctor also says it is not possible to make a biopsi or to just remove the fibroid (even though it is not growing in the urerus but at a 'string' from the uterus) because of the risk of the possible cancercells to spred.
Now I wonder if any of you have had experiences with firbroids that grew fast during pregnancy, the supection of cancer and possible treatments, that does not involve removing the uterus?
I am writing from Denmark (so excuse my english), since there might be a difference in treaments across borders, that could inspire me in what to discuss with my doctor.
