Pelvic Mass - Uterine Fibroid


A 44 year old woman presented with a large pelvic mass. She was unable to wear tight clothes. She denied heavy bleeding. She complained of bladder frequency and was unable to completely empty her bladder.


Pelvic ultrasound scanning revealed a 10 cm uterine fibroid.


She elected to undergo Laparoscopic Myomectomy. The pathology revealed a benign fibroid.


Normal bladder function returned and she was no longer aware of a pelvic swelling.
