GERD, Hiatal Hernia, and Fibroid tumors

  : : For many years, I've had large fibroid tumors in my uterus.  I've not considered surgery because they are pretty much without symptoms.  I was recently diagnosed with a hiatal hernia (small one) and i'm wondering if the fibroid tumors in my uterus could have caused this hernia problem.  My doctor said my uterus is approx a 16 week size.
  : : Please advise.....thanks!

  : Dear Kathy,
  : Hiatal herrnias and fibroid tumors are both common findings and it is quite common to diagnose both conditions in women.

  Thanks for the response, but i'm still unclear as to whether or not the fibroid  uterus could have contributed to pushing the abdomin upwards?  Please advise...THANKS!
Dear Kathy,
It is unlikely that the uterine fibroid is the cause of your hiatal hernia.
