Gynaecological Examinations

Fibroids are non-cancerous masses growing on the uterine walls. They may also be referred to as :

  • Myoma
  • Leiomyoma
  • Fibromyoma

One may have either one or multiple fibroids on different locations on the uterus. Their rate of growth varies. Some cases are slow while others may be rapid. We know that genetic factors may also have a role to play hence the variance. The size of the fibroids also vary greatly. Some may be just like a dot. Others maybe as large as a grapefruit. They can actually hinder freedom of movement due to their size and weight. With them comes a lot of pain and disruption of conducting ones daily chores.One may have either one or multiple fibroids on different locations on the uterus. Their rate of growth varies.

Uterus

Should women have hysterectomies? I wouldn’t recommend it unless it’s a matter of either life or death. It is known that at menopause when estrogen levels drop, most fibroids vanish. There are a lot of alternative practices focussed on right thinking and living that may help shrink and dissolve these fibroids. When operated, most recur again. Therefore it is better first to try out safer natural options and avoid the knife.

Fibroid Symptoms

Pain

We have a number of symptoms. Some of the most common are tabulated below:

  • During sexual intercourse one may experience pain
  • Some pelvic pain and pressure may be felt
  • A high frequency of the urge to urinate

  • Bloating and constipation issues
  • Heavy menstrual flow

Methods of Diagnosis

Ultrasound

Some of the common methods of diagnosis consists of:

  • A pelvic MRI
  • X-ray
  • Checking of the condition of the shape and size of the uterus

Suspected Causes

Hormonal imbalance

The exact causes of this condition are still unknown. However, there is a relationship between fibroid growth and excessive levels of human estrogen and progesterone. It has also been observed that African American women seems to have a higher incidence rate than other groups in the US.

Treatments

Surgical Procedure for Fibroids

There are a number of treatment and each basically depends on the assessment of each individual unique case. For example you can’t take an aggressive action of hysterectomy or removal of the uterus to a young lady who has no child unless it’s a life or death case. Some of the common options include:

  • Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE) – In this procedure the main goal is to deny the fibroid its blood supply system through surgical disconnection. This in effect results in the shrinking of the uterine fibroid.
  • Laparoscopic Myolysis – This procedure may be done on an out patient basis. It’s suitable in cases where large fibroids exist. In this procedure either laser or electric current are directed to the fibroid utilising special needles to burn them. This procedure helps shrink the sturbbon fibroids.
  • Hysteroscopic Resection – In this procedure a surgical instrument is used to remove the fibroid. These are removed through the vagina then the remaining areas are cauterized.
