What is a calcified fibroid?

Uterine fibroids are one of the common benign gynecologic tumors, affecting many women mostly in their child-bearing age. At this time, the etiology is unclear but there are several theories that have been speculated including genetic predisposition and the affect of estrogen/progesterone levels.

Calcified fibroids develop when the fibroid tumor outgrows its own blood supple, resulting in a process of degeneration. As this degeneration occurs, the process initiates calcium deposition, leading to calcification. There is an increased likeliness of this calcification process to occur during menopause as fibroids tend to regress after the estrogen drop during menopause.

Symptoms of a calcified fibroid may vary with position and size, as with ordinary fibroids. However, there is a much reduced severity of pain since the calcified fibroid signifies that the fibroid is no longer growing. Pressure on the area of the calcified fibroid may lead to constant waist pain, usually made worse during menstruation. Because the calcified fibroid is formed during the end stage of the degenerative process, there is no real reason to “treat” the fibroid.

  4. Hi I have just been told my fybroid is degenerative & starting to calcify.
    I am still experiencing constant back pain, aching legs & pelvic pain, also tiredness.
    Please could you give me advice if the pain will now subside or will always remain & a hysterectomy is my only option.

  9. I have been experiencing pelvic girdle pain over the last several months. I had pelvic x-rays taken recently, and I not only have osteoarthritis in all of my pelvic/hip bone joints, including my lower spine, but I also have a “large, calcified uterine fibroid”. The fibroid made itself known about 16-18 years ago when it twisted, cutting off blood supply – extremely painful. Since most of these are benign, I never had it removed. I have requested an appointment to see my gynecologist about it. Do I have to have surgery, or are there other ways around the problem? Thank you for your insight.

    Why can’t the calcified fibroid be treated? What can capture the calcified fibroid the best: 1. Cat Scan 2. MRI 3. X-Ray or what? My doctor has done them all including an ultrasound. It looks like she just don’t know what to do.
