Psst… Where can I find pictures of fibroid tumors?

Another popular search phrase – “pictures of fibroids”. I am hoping (one of these days) to figure a way to post the image I have of one of my fibroids. Acquired it after my Hysteroscopic Myomectomy. It actually shows where the doctor started shaving it down. Until then, here are a few sites to keep you occupied.

MayoClinic.com – How Fibroids Develop

At MayoClinic.com, you can click the small thumbnail images to enlarge them.

Leiomyoma (Wikipedia)

An interesting (dare I say, eclectic) assortment.

    Yes. Definitely a goody. Please check out that Google link. Impressive images and also a good way to find other fibroid resources.

    Thanks for the great addition.

  2. salohcin Says:

    hey, if you want to help make finding images easier, check out Google’s Image Labeller Game. It’s predicted that through this game all images indexed by Google will be accurately labelled within 2 months. Be warned, it’s strangely addictive.

  3. EclecticGeek Says:

    Just what I needed. Another addiction. 😉
    This game is crazy and fun. A good distraction from any fibroid-related (or other) insanity. Check out the above link but the included warning is true. Thanks.

    […] After making a post over on my other blog about finding medical images and videos, I received a comment with a link to the Google Image Labeler. The commenter (salohcin) included a warning about the addictive nature of the “game”. What an understatement! […]
