Can vaginal spotting be a symptom of a uterine fibroid?

I’ve had dnc about two years ago and had a Mirena put in to help My hyperplasia. I had no bleeding at all until about 6 months ago. Started spotting. The last month or two I’ve had more bleeding stomach pain and now whenever I lift something heavy I have instant vaginal bleeding. Could it be a fibroid tumor?
