What are uterine fibroids?

If you are struggling with worsening menstrual bleeding, painful periods, and even more frequent urination, you may be dealing with a condition known as uterine fibroids. Uterine fibroids, medically known as “leiomyoma,” are non-cancerous tumors that develop within the uterus of the female body. While most women with uterine fibroids experience symptoms such as those above, others may have uterine fibroids but are not aware they exist. Uterine fibroids are extremely common, and almost half of all women will develop a uterine fibroid at some point in their life. This condition can also run in families, causing a genetic component to their development as well.

What are fibroids?

Fibroids are tumors of all different sizes that can develop anywhere in the uterus. The size and location of the uterine fibroid can often cause different problems for each patient. Those that develop on the inside uterine lining are more likely than others to result in telltale symptoms, though those on the wall or the outside of the uterus can be problematic as well.

How are uterine fibroids treated?

Small fibroids that are asymptomatic can often be left alone with no concerns. However, when women are experiencing problems due to these fibroids, they may want to speak to a doctor about having them removed. Removal of the fibroids can be achieved with several different methods. These include:

  • Uterine artery embolization
  • Radiofrequency ablation
  • Myomectomies
  • Endometrial ablation

Which treatment is right for me?

There are many factors that contribute to the treatment option recommended to a patient by the team at Columbus Women’s Care. With a thorough evaluation and a proper diagnosis, women can speak to our doctors about their concerns and learn more about the treatments that may be performed. Patients who have uterine fibroids but are not experiencing any issues can often leave them alone unless problems progress later on.
