Cervical Myomas

Author: James Pendergraft

Cervical myomas are non-cancerous tumors in the cervix or lower part of the uterus. Myomas are tumors made of muscle tissue. Often, cervical myomas are also seen with myomas in the upper part of the uterus also called fibroids. Myomas have many sizes; the large ones may be seen protruding into the vagina. Large myomas that protrude are called prolapsed myoma. There is always a possibility that myomas may become infected. They may be the cause of bleeding. Myomas also can block the passage of urine.

The Underlying Cause of Myoma

According to experts, the cause of myoma is estrogen dominance or too much quantity of estrogen in the body compared to the quantity of progesterone. Estrogen causes the proliferation of body cells. In contrast, progesterone slows down body cells; it prevents them from reproducing.

The Symptoms of Cervical Myoma

Some cases of cervical myomas are asymptomatic. Most cases, especially those dealing with large myomas, cause symptoms.  

One of the most common symptoms of cervical myoma is bleeding. Bleeding can be either mild or heavy. The heavy type of bleeding caused by cervical myoma may result in anemia.
A feeling of fatigue and physical weakness may also be experienced by women suffering from cervical myoma.
Women with this illness may also experience pain during sexual intercourse.
Another symptom of cervical myoma is when a woman feels heaviness and swelling in the abdomen.
Those who suffer from cervical myoma may also have difficulty urinating because the growth obstructs urine flow. Cervical myomas may cause urinary tract infections.

How a Cervical Myoma is Diagnosed

When one feels the above symptoms, she should go to a gynecologist. The doctor identifies the myoma during physical examination, in particular, pelvic inspection. Prolapsed myomas are easily seen. Doctors may also feel myomas when they check the cervix with one hand while the other hand is placed on top of the abdomen.

One reliable method that doctors use in diagnosing cervical myoma is by obtaining an image of the cervix and uterus through an ultrasound device inserted into the area, a procedure called transvaginal ultrasonography. In the process, it is also detected whether or not the myoma causes obstruction of the urine flow.  

In order to address the problem of anemia, blood tests are undertaken to determine whether or not there may be cervical cancer, a certain test called Papanicolaou or Pap test is usually done.

The Treatment of Cervical Myoma

If the size of the myoma is small it usually does not cause symptoms. If this is the case, no treatment may be necessary. However, if the cervical myoma is big, it causes discomfort and even complications. In this case, the cervical myoma is surgically taken out. The procedure of removing cervical myoma is called myomectomy. Sometimes, only the myoma is removed. In this case, the patient may still become pregnant.  In cases dealing with bigger myomas, the entire uterus is removed in a process called hysterectomy. Unfortunately, women who have undergone hysterectomy can no longer have children.

Will they get any bigger? appreciate your advice

    • wcanoodle says:

      Sounds more like bartholin cyst? Or something else.(Maybe tumors, warts, granulomas, herpes?) Go to the gynecologist and get checked…don’t put it off. Could be almost anything.

    Should i go to my doctor about an exceedingly heavy period?
    i was recently on a road trip and i was wearing a tampon and a pad and they didnt work the blood soaked through my underwear and pants. I read this.

    Other causes of heavy abnormal periods could be:

    - Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
    - Cervical Cancer
    - Endometrial Cancer
    - Lupus
    - Cervical or Endometrial Polyps
    - Fibroids
    - IUD (Intrauterine Device)
    - Blood disorder (platelets disorder, which called Willebrand diseases)

    Contact your doctor for diagnosis.

      If you are soaking through at least a pad an hour for several hours in a row or completely saturate a tampon in an hour then you really need to let your health care professional know about this.

      Good luck, Your BEINGgirl Experts

    Is it possible to have cervical cancer after you have had CIN2 removed back in 2001?
    I was just given some advice by a doctor and I expained to him that I had the CIN2 removed by surgery in 2001. My pap test now come back normal. My uterus is much bigger than normal and no there is no fibroids or endremetriosis, and I am not pregnant. I have been know to spot blood in between my periods a lot last year. I have hight grade epiethathial cells, and have an ofencive odour that is not an infection. I am due to see my gyni soon. I just want to know is it possible to have cervical cancer even if your pap smears are coming back normal. My last period was almost 3 months ago now. I am almost 39. I was told it could be endrometrial cancer or cervical cancer. I had a CT IPV done recently. Please I need your advise here.Is it possi ble to have cervical cancer even though I had my CIN2 removed? My periods in 2006 was a year full of hemeraging for me as I was bleeding so bad I ended up at the ER as I thoght I was going to die. soaking up a pad every 10 minutes or so. Any ideas?

    • christian s says:

      Yes its possible. I would be thinking hysterectomy if I were you. Talk to your doctor about it. With the heavy bleeding and past history I bet he/she will suggest it
