Also called uterina myoma, leiomyomas, or fibromas. These are solid and dense tumors in nature as they are made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue that develop in the uterus. There is no any specific reason behind the growth of these kinds of tumors into female uterine but it is believed that Estrogen (the primary female sex hormone which is responsible for the development and regulation of the female reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics) is one of the major influences behind the growth of these cells.
Some of the common symptoms are:
Heavy or prolonged menstrual periods
Abnormal bleeding between menstrual periods
Low back pain
Pain during intercourse
How is it performed?
Well, sometimes it is seen that fibroids disappear totally from the woman’s uterus as she approaches menopause. But if the fibroids are large or so pain giving to any woman then the treatments are needed to be carried out.
Treatment will be determined by your health care provider(s) based on:
Your overall health and medical history
Size of the fibroids or tumor
Your desire for pregnancy
In general, treatment for fibroids may include:
Uterine artery embolization. Also called uterine fibroid embolization, uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a newer minimally-invasive (without a large abdominal incision) technique. In this treatment, the surgeon first identifies the arteries which are supplying blood to the fibroids and then block them off. When we do this there is no blood supplied to the fibroids and hence they cannot grow more.
Hysterectomy. In this procedure, the entire uterus is removed from the female body leading to infertility in that women.
Myomectomy. In this method surgeon removes the fibroids but no risk is made to pregnancy of that women.
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists(GnRH agonists). If a woman is not able to achieve a natural menopause, then this approach is used to trigger "medical menopause".
Generally, people who have undergone any Urological surgery are able to go home after 3-4 days from the surgery. Recovery may take weeks. You most likely can get back to light activity after 3 weeks. Tiring exercise should wait until after 3-4 weeks of recovery.
