Leiomyoma of uterus are the most common benign tumours of the female pelvis but cervical fibroids are rare. The incidence of cervical fibroids is around 0.5-1%. Usually cervical fibroids cause infertility, difficulty in labour, infections, metrorrhagia, menorrhagia, constipation; retention of urine and dyspareunia, sometimes the presentation may be unusual. We present two cases of cervical fibroid, first one being a huge cervical fibroid mimicking an ovarian tumour and the second being a prolapsed fibroid polyp. Even though we have modern diagnostic techniques like CT scan and MRI, sometimes diagnosis is only confirmed on laparotomy.
