Q: Are fibroid tumors a problem in pregnancy?

A: Whether a fibroid tumor, also known as a myoma, is a possible problem before or during pregnancy depends mostly on the following:

  • How many fibroids are there?
  • Where are they located (inside or outside the uterine wall, front or back, low or high)?
  • How big are they?

Depending on the answers to these questions, your doctor can give a possible list of scenarios regarding treatment during pregnancy.
