Thanks for your query.

Fibroid is a soft tissue tumor originating from the uterine musculature. These fibroids are mostly benign and do not pose any problem unless they are very big. Sometimes these fibroids get degenerated and result in calcification.

The fibroid you have is complicated with calcification. Since the size is less than 5 cms surgical removal is not recommended. If it grows and crosses more than 5 cms then Myomectomy (surgery) is done.

Hope, I answered your query.

Please let me know if there are any other concerns.
