vascular (blood supply) fibroid

This was th remark on the ultra sound report. They indicated that since the fibroid had grown by over 2cm in 2 years and was 'vascular' that it should be investigated for of course the big C. Anyone had experience of this? Looking for reassurance. TIA and big hugsxxxx

Re: vascular (blood supply) fibroid

Aren't all fibroids by nature "vascular"? They have their own blood supply and are considered vascular tumors. This is why embolization works in some cases, they are able to cut the blood supply off. During my surgery the doctor prepared me that she may not be able to complete my hysterectomy laproscopicaly because of the size of my fibroids. Her words "Big fibroids = big blood vessels supplying the fibroids." Statistics are very clearcut with fibroids, they really are almost never cancerous. The following is a quote concerning fibroid growth by a doctor: "Recent research, however, has shown that even when a fibroid is diagnosed as rapidly growing, it is cancerous less than 3 in 1,000 cases. Only .25% of rapidly growing fibroids are truly cancerous."
Hope these factoids help ease your mind. Good luck with your surgery.

Re: vascular (blood supply) fibroid

Thank you for your reply. Thats reassuring. Am really trying to keep my worries under control as its still another 3 weeks to wait and then more time after that to get the path results back. It helps so much to hear the voice of reason and to get into my head that its unlikely to be bad news.

Bohdie, you are the day after me!!

My fibroid has grown that much in six months, and she has not seemed concerned in the growth.

Re: vascular (blood supply) fibroid

Hi Alicathelton! Maybe I will see you on the post-op forum after the op! How old are you (if you don't mind me asking!). I'm 49 but feel like I'm mid-30s. Only asking as it seems that fibroids have growth spurts when you're coming up to the menopausal age. I have no symptoms (of the menopause) at all but do seem to spend my whole life either working up to ovulation or working up to my period!! Hugs x

Re: vascular (blood supply) fibroid

I am 33, and have no pre-menopausal symptoms. Of course, I have PCOS, so that varies, quite a bit! lol!
