Fibroids are a relatively common issue and even if they are surgically removed you can develop more. Low iron levels are a common side effect of having fibroids due to increased blood loss with menses. So it is good that this is being managed. There is no way to know if this lump is another fibroid or if it is something else without further investigations. If you have private medical insurance you can check with your claims team if they will cover referral to a private specialist to take over your care.
