Facts About Intramural Fibroids - The Most Common Uterine Fibroid Tumor

Author: Melanie

Intra means inside, hence intramural fibroid is a uterine tumor planted inside the uterine wall. In this article I am going to share information on the symptoms and treatment options available for this type of uterine fibroid tumor.

Intramural tumor grows inside the uterine wall making the uterus feel and look larger. This can make the woman look pregnant, or have a pot belly which will not go away despite dieting or exercise.

The common symptoms of this type of tumor include:

o    Excessive bleeding

o    Pain in the Pelvic region and back

o    Frequent urination

o    May be responsible for infertility and miscarriages

o    Pressure in the bladder and uterus

Based on whether the intramural fibroids are close to the outside of the uterus or the endometrium, the symptoms will be similar to submucosal or subserous fibroids.

In extreme cases if the size of these fibroids is large, it may block the blood supply, oxygen and nutrients to other body organs like kidneys. In some patients very large intramural fibroids may also cause permanent damage to the kidneys.

Medical research has indicated that this type of  fibroids can have a negative impact on the woman's fertility and result in miscarriages. Woman with this problem are also at a greater risk of undergoing premature delivery or a caesarean.

Stop Fibroids

Intramural uterine fibroid treatment options are:

1. Abdominal myomectomy is the most common intramural fibroid treatment option. This treatment is particularly recommended if

a) The size of the fibroids are more 5 or 7 centimeters, or

b) There are multiple fibroids which need to be removed.

o    Uterine Artery Embolization is the second fibroids treatment option which can be considered.

Women with fibroid in uterus normally respond extremely well to nature cure. In rare cases where the fibroids can become life threatening or when the symptoms get unbearable, it would be worthwhile to pursue surgery or hormonal uterine fibroid treatment option. In all other cases it makes sense to try and to shrink fibroids naturally.

About the Author

I am an ex banker turned home maker. As soon as I reached the age of 40 I started experiencing a number of typical "women's problems". Like most others I too always resorted to modern medicines as my first line of treatment. Needless to say it was always accompanied by a number of side effects. Sick and tired of bearing up with the side effects I decided to do some research of my own. Thanks to internet I came across ideas and methods of natural cure for most of these typical women's issues. I have tried these out personally and now am a strong believer in nature cure. Nature Cure is absolutely safe, has no side effects and offers permanent solution for most of our problems.

    Does a 26mm intramural fibroid in lady of 50 yrs with normal mensuration could cause any problems?

  2. briannadoors says:

    I have been diagnosed with a anteverted uterus and intramural fibroid on the right lateral wall of my uterus?
    I have searched the web and nothing really explains to me what either of these diagnosis mean. I have been ‘feeling’ this fibroid alot recently and appears to be growing bigger causing a feeling of a large mass on my right hand side. Can anyone explain if this is normal and what intramural and anteverted uterus mean. Also if anyone knows of any natural ways the fibroid could be shrunk, I would be grateful to hear of them. Thanks in advance.

      Let’s see if I can help. Anteverted uterus refers to the direction the top of the uterus is pointing. Some are anteverted and some are retroverted. Anteverted is the most common and acceptable position of the uterus. This implies that the top is towards your front, or tummy. So there is nothing wrong with that. It is completeley normal–now on to the fibroid issue.


      Fibroids, or myomas, are growths or benign tumours that form inside the uterus (womb). Around four in 10 women over the age of 40 will have fibroids. No one knows why fibroids develop, but it is suspected that the sex hormones – oestrogen and progesterone – play significant roles. This is because fibroids rarely grow in prepubescent girls and postmenopausal women. Pre-existing fibroids stop growing, and may even shrink, once a woman passes the menopause. Fibroids often cause no problems, but may occasionally be associated with infertility, miscarriage and premature labour. Other possible problems include heavy, lengthy and painful periods. Treatment depends on the size, number and location of the fibroids, but may include drugs and surgery. Fibroids rarely turn cancerous.
      Different types
      Fibroids are categorised by their location, which includes:
      Intramural – growing in the uterine wall. Intramural fibroids are the most common variety.
      Submucosal – growing in the uterine lining (endometrium). This type tends to cause excessive menstrual bleeding and period pain.
      Subserosal – growing on the exterior wall of the uterus. They sometimes appear like long stalks

      Generally speaking if it doesn’t bother you too much, just let it be.

    Is it possible to have an undiagnosed intramural fibroid for years even though there were annual obgyn exams?
    Are intramural fibroids easily identified by obgyns? I have a 7 cm fibroid and I’m wondering why it wasn’t diagnosed sooner.

    • Jen G says:

      It depends on what happens in your annual exams. In England, we only have smear tests every 3 years. The nurse takes a swab of your cervix. Its easy enough to miss fibroids in this case because if your cervix is at an angle at the day of your smear (yes they move around the little beggars!) If it was 7cm a professional should be able to see it or feel it if you had an internal exam annually. But I dont know how fast they can grow.

      Do you mean you have a fibroid on the right side? A fibroid is a tumor and it should not be there. Fibroids are not cancerous, but just follow your Doctors advice.
