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.
