Bulky uterus and heterogeneous myometrium, masses in the uterus. What does it mean? Cancer?

Hi, I am 47 years old. 6 months ago I experienced an extra long mentstural cycle (45 days) and since then have had 3 normal cycles (30 Days)then a short cycle (16 Days). This pattern has now repeated itself twice I have a slightly bulky uterus - 9cm. Ultrasound report states that the myometrium is hetergeneous and I have a small fibroid. Gyne exam states normal looking cervix and no obvious masses in the uterus which is mobile. Does it sound like I have cancer?

Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query.
No,this isnt cancer, this is fibroid and fibroid is benign tumour. It is hard to say does this cause your symptoms but you should find the cause of your period abnormality. It can be hormonal imbalance or ovarian pathology. Fibroid can cause bleeding and pain if become enlarged enough. YOu are in premenopasal age and it can be expected to have such difficulties. You just need to do frequent check up and consider hormonal therapy. Wish you good health.
