Brief Answer: Not likely. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for trusting us with your health concern. The tissues are not likely to grow around IUD so as to cover it completely. The mass that you can feel is more likely to be a soft tissue swelling and needs a direct examination to find out. The threads can sometime get coiled inside the vagina causing a feeling of lost threads. A direct per speculum examination by a gynecologist will help in detecting this. Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
