Multiple axial and sagittal T1 and T2 weighted sequences were performed to the pelvis. The uterus measures 11.4 x 7.2 x 8.0 cm. It contains several sharply circumscribed low T-2 weighted signal masses on of which is dominant and consistent with leiomyomata. This dominant fibroid is present centrally in the left corpus and measures 5.0 x 4.9 x 5.0 cm. The endometrium is displaced but otherwise unremarkable. There is some extrinsic compression upon the bladder by the anteverted myomatous uterus. The ovaries and adnexa are unremarkable. No abnormal fluid collection in the pelvis. Changes are present in the subcutaneous fat most likely due to a liposuction.
Question: Not quite sure what leiomyomata means and extrinsic compression by bladder. Also I have never had a liposuction what else could he be talking about?
Welcome to the community. A leiomyomata or leiomyomas (plural for leiomyoma) are fibroids in the uterus. Fibroids are very common and are almost always benign (over 99% of the time). Most do not cause symptoms that warrant medical treatment. They can press on bladder and/or bowel and cause some symptoms there. And they can cause irregular and/or heavy bleeding which can usually be treated with medications.
Unfortunately, many women have hysterectomies for fibroids when that is overkill. Fibroids and their symptoms typically abate after menopause. And if symptoms warrant treatment, there are less drastic options than hysterectomy.
All else looks normal per report. I have no clue what is meant about the subcutaneous fat appearing to have undergone liposuction!
Are you having symptoms that led you to having this ultrasound or scan?
