How are fibroids usually diagnosed?

Fibroids can be diagnosed via a gynecological exam or by using imaging tests, according to the National Institutes of HealthOff Site Icon (NIH). Those tests include an ultrasound, MRI, X-rays and Cat scan (CT).

If you are found to have fibroids, you might need surgery to remove or you may also need surgery to determine if you actually have fibroids, including laparoscopy and hysteroscopy, according to the NIH. Most fibroids are non-cancerous.

For more information about how uterine fibroids are diagnosed, talk with your doctor.
