Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I am Dr K. I have over 25 years of clinical experience and look forward to answering your question. i may need more information from you, so I may ask for that. My goal is to provide a complete answer to your question and to be sure you are satisfied with that answer. 

I am sorry that you are having this problem but will do my best to assist you and answer your questions.    It looks like you have a small submocosal fibroid?

This is a fibroid that is pressing into the uterine cavity.   Most of the time, it is an incidental finding and does not affect your fertility or a future pregnancy.    Sometimes submucosal fibroids are in an area that makes miscarriage more likely, if the pregnancy implants near it.

Thank you for trusting Just Answer with your question. Please let me know if you have additional concerns or need me to clarify something. I am happy to help.

What about the posterior intramural 26x17x16?
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Is it too small? Is almost 3 cm?
Customer: replied 19 days ago.
Could it block my tubes?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 19 days ago.

That again, is a fairly small fibroid.   It has less effect when in the wall of the uterus.   It would be noted if it was blocking your tubes.  So no.
