In most cases, fibroids don't cause symptoms, the Cleveland Clinic says, but symptoms such as excessive bleeding during menstruation, pain during intercourse, frequent urination or a feeling of fullness in the lower abdomen can occur. But giant fibroids, like the one described in this case, are extremely rare, because women usually have the growths removed before they reach such large sizes, Lim noted. The surgery to remove such a massive tumor was challenging, the report said. To remove the fibroid, doctors performed a total abdominal hysterectomy , an operation that also removed the woman's uterus and ovaries, according to the case report, which was published online Sept. After the fibroid's removal, doctors had to perform plastic surgery to reconstruct the woman's abdominal wall, which had thinned after being so distended, according to the report. Fibroids actually occur commonly in women of reproductive age. When Lim last saw the woman, two months after the surgery, the patient was in good health and her abdomen was healing well. Fibroids , or "uterine leiomyomas," are a type of benign, or noncancerous, tumor of the uterus.
