Gain a better understanding of your body. These benign, largely asymptomatic growths occur on various parts of a woman’s uterine wall. In many cases, fibroids are only discovered during a physical health screening examination or as a result of pressure or pain on the bladder, pelvis or rectum. In some cases, they can result in abnormally heavy or painful menstruation, heavy urination, lower back pain or pain during sexual intercourse.
The majority of growths do not require treatment beyond observation. During the post-menopausal period, the majority of cases show a significant reduction in size, and problems beyond the age of 50 resulting from fibroids are rare.
If the fibroids begin to develop symptoms, our doctor can recommend a variety of options. Various medications can be used to control symptoms and in some cases, the best course of uterine fibroid treatment will be surgery such as hysterectomy or myomectomy. In the former case, the entire uterus is removed and in the latter, only the fibroids are targeted, preserving the woman’s ability to reproduce. Our doctor will discuss with you the best option based on your individual circumstances and will help to create a treatment plan that best addresses your fibroids.
