Uterine fibroids, which your doctor may call myomas or leiomyomas, are muscular tumors that can grow on your uterus. They hardly turn into cancer, and if you get them it doesn’t mean you’re more probable to get uterine cancer.
Fibroids can differ a lot in size, shape, and location. They can show up in your uterus, uterine wall, or on its surface. They can also ascribe to your uterus by a stalk- or stem-like structure.
Uterine fibroids generally appear in women of childbearing age — usually between 30-40 years old, but they can show up at any age.
Most fibroids do not cause symptoms and do not needfibroid treatment. In fact, they often shrink or fade after menopause.
If fibroids are causing painful symptoms, however, numerous medical treatments can help.
Dr.Nandhitha atCare & Cure women’s Speciality Hospitalmay recommend different treatments depending on the symptoms, the harshness of the symptoms, and the location of the fibroids.
