Most used techniques in fibroid diagnosis

Most of the fibroids that do not cause symptoms are detected at routine gynecological checkups, through pelvic exams and ultrasounds. They can also be diagnosed by means of a hysteroscopy, which consists of introducing a camera through the cervix to visualise the inside of the cavity.

Another method that allows this is laparoscopy, which is a more invasive technique that consists of making small holes in the abdomen to introduce a camera and visualize the inside of it.

Both hysteroscopy and laparoscopy can also be used to perform a myomectomy (removal of the fibroids) if necessary.
