Hi, welcome to HCM.
Fibroid means a localised growth of uterine muscular part. It is common finding in most women. It is significant onoy if it is causing symptoms like pain, increased bleeding , large size etc.
If you are not having any symptoms then no need to worry about that. In case you have any trouble please consult your gynaecologist fo4 management.
Rest of pelvic organs are completely normal. It just mentioned in detailed.

Hope I have addressed your query.
