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.
