Brief Answer:
Fibroids need repeat evaluation

Detailed Answer:

I understand your concerns.

Uterine fibroids enlarge with age and could be possible reason for painful periods. Please get it rechecked to know the status of fibroids now.

Long standing itching in perineum and hip area is likely to be due to fungal infection. I suggest you apply antifungal cream to hip to cure itch as this appears to be fungal infection.

Let me know if you need anymore help.
