AbstractUterine leiomyomas (fibroids or myomas), benign tumors of the human uterus, are the single most common indication for hysterectomy. They are clinically apparent in up to 25% of women and cause significant morbidity, including prolonged or heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure or pain, and, in rare cases, reproductive dysfunction. Thus, both the economic cost and the effect on the quality of life are substantial. Surgery has been the mainstay of fibroid treatment. This case presents a 51year old, asymptomatic big fibroid diagnosed incidentally on clinical examination and imaging, which was managed timely and the patient recovered because of thorough clinical examination even in asymptomatic patients.
