User avatar Hi kcreekie,
The typical symptoms when presented that are associated with benign fibroid tumors of the uterus are heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, bleeding between menstrual cycles, urinary incontinence, constipation, etc. etc. However, there are other conditions both benign and malignant, that may cause those symptoms. The fact that you are experiencing constitutional symptoms such as night sweats, nausea and vomiting, are somewhat alarming and would warrant further investigative studies. Has there been a discussion of any further diagnostic studies to identify if this is related to a benign or malignant condition based on your symptoms?
