Most common after menopause, calcification usually occurs when a fibroid reaches the final stages of degeneration or cell death. Calcium deposits develop in the remaining fibrous tissue, and in some cases even calcify the entire fibroid turning it into a hard mass. Even though calcified fibroids are at the end of the fibroid life cycle, symptoms can still occur.
