Does my wife have a fibroid in the uterus?

Q: My wife has been suffering from uninterrupted periods for the last one month. She underwent USG which showed a hypoechoic fibroid of approx. 22 x 17 mm anteriorly in the right wall of the uterus. The right ovary shows two anechoic follicles/cysts and there is cholelithiasis. I want to know whether this is the cause for her uninterrupted periods. We also visited a gyanecologist but she said that there is nothing to worry. Please advise.

A:This is a small fibroid and would not be enough to cause continued bleeding for a month. Usually large or multiple fibroids do this. Another option is to have a dilation and curettage if the bleeding persists for up to 3 months. Another approach might be to try hormone (the pill) regulation on the presumption that this may be a hormonally induced irregularity causing the bleeding. The key point is to be quite sure that the bleeding is not caused by an uterine lesion or tumour.
