Brief Answer:

Chances of cervical cancer are present.

Detailed Answer:


I have seen the attached reports. Your mother has multiple small fibroids in the uterus largest one of these is around 6 cm.

All these are benign swellings and after menopause does not cause any problem. Even if she does not take any treatment for these fibroids, these are not going to cause any harm.

But her colposcopy shows an inflamed cervix and HPV 16 is positive.

This is suggestive of high chances of cervical cancer in the near future which needs a surgical removal of cervix and uterus.

There are no medicines that can decrease fibroid or decrease the chances of cervical cancer. Surgical removal is the best option for her.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
