WHAT ARE FIBROID?
Fibroid are benign (non-cancerous) growths that can occur in your womb (uterus). They are also known as myomas or leiomyomas.
The vast majority of fibroid occur in women of reproductive age, and according to some estimates, they are diagnosed in black women two to three times more frequently than in white women. They are seldom seen in young women who have not begun menarche (menstruation) and they usually stabilize or regress in women who have passed menopause.
You may only have one fibroid or you might have many fibroids of different sizes. They don’t spread to other parts of your body, except in very rare circumstances.
TYPES OF FIBROID
Fibroid are named according to where they are found in your womb
- Subserosal Fibroid
Subserosal fibroid form on the outside of your uterus, which is called the serosa. They may grow large enough to make your womb appear bigger on one side. The subserous type rarely causes
any symptoms unless it is more than 5 cm.
- Intramural Fibroid: These types appear within the lining of the uterus (endometrium). Intramural fibroids may grow larger and actually stretch your womb. From our experience so far treating fibroids, this type of fibroid is the most common type of fibroid and are found in about 70 percent of women of childbearing age. The intramural type can cause heavy periods.
- Pedunculated Fibroids
When subserosal tumors develop a stem (a slender base that supports the tumor), they become pedunculated fibroids.
- Submucosal Fibroid
These types of tumors develop in the inner lining (myometrium) of your uterus. Submucosal tumors are not as common as other types, but when they do develop, they may cause heavy menstrual bleeding, irregular bleeding and trouble conceiving.
WHAT CAUSES FIBROID?
It is unclear why fibroids develop, but several factors may influence their formation.
Estrogen and progesterone are the hormones produced by the ovaries. They cause the uterine lining to regenerate during each menstrual cycle and may stimulate the growth of fibroids.Click here to get hormonal imbalance solution kit and balance your hormone
- Family History
Fibroids may run in the family. If your mother, sister, or grandmother has a history of this condition, you may develop it as well.
Pregnancy increases the production of estrogen and progesterone in your body. Fibroids may develop and grow rapidly while you are pregnant.
WHO IS AT RISK FOR FIBROID?
Women are at greater risk for developing fibroid if they have one or more of the following risk factors:
Pregnancy, a family history of fibroid, being over the age of 30, being of African descent, having a high body weight.
WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF FIBROID?
Most fibroid cause no symptoms at all. Your symptoms will depend on the location and size of the tumor(s) and how many tumors you have. Fibroid can become significantly problematic. If your tumor is very small, or if you are going through menopause, you may not have any symptoms. Fibroid may shrink during and after menopause.
Symptoms of fibroid may include:
1-Heavy Bleeding during periods
2- Pelvic Pain
2- Increase menstrual cramping
3- Bladder pressure, frequent urination
4- Pain during intercourse,
5- Menstruation that lasts longer than usual
6- Pressure or fullness in your lower abdomen
7- Enlargement of the abdomen
8- Rectal pressure, constipation
9– Infertility or recurrent miscarriage
10- Pregnancy complications
However, your prognosis will depend on the size and location of your fibroid. Fibroid may not need treatment if they are small or do not produce symptoms. If you are pregnant and have fibroid, or become pregnant and have fibroid, your physician will carefully monitor your condition. In most cases, fibroid do not cause problems during pregnancy if they are not in a threat location. Speak with your doctor if you expect to become pregnant and have fibroid.
HOW ARE FIBROID DIAGNOSED?
You will need to see a gynecologist, who will do a pelvic exam. This exam is used to check the condition, size, and shape of your uterus. You may also need other tests:
An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of your uterus on a screen. This will allow your doctor to see its internal structures and any fibroids present. A transvaginal ultrasound, in which the ultrasound wand (transducer) is inserted into the vagina, may provide clearer pictures since it is closer to the uterus during this procedure.
- Pelvic MRI
This in-depth imaging testing produces pictures of your uterus, ovaries, and other pelvic organs.
TREATMENT OPTIONS FOR FIBROID
Your doctor will develop a treatment plan based on your age, the size of your fibroid(s), and your overall health. You may receive a combination of treatments such as.
Medications to regulate your hormone levels may be prescribed to shrink fibroids. Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists, such as leuprolide (Lupron),
Effects of Medication: It will cause your estrogen and progesterone levels to drop, stopping menstruation and shrinking fibroids.
An intrauterine device (IUD) that releases the hormone progestin, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain relievers, such as ibuprophen, and birth control pills can help control bleeding and pain caused by fibroid, but will not shrink or eliminate them.
Surgery to remove very large or multiple growths (myomectomy) may be performed. An abdominal myomectomy involves making a large incision in the abdomen to access the uterus and remove the fibroid. The surgery can also be performed laparoscopically, using a few small incisions into which surgical tools and a camera are inserted.
Your physician may perform a hysterectomy (removal of your uterus) if your condition worsens, or if no other treatments work. However, this means that you will not be able to bear children in the future. This is risky as well.
- Minimally-Invasive Procedures
A newer and completely non-invasive surgical procedure is forced ultrasound surgery (FUS). You will lie down inside a special MRI machine that allows doctors to visualize the inside of your uterus. High-energy, high-frequency sound waves will be directed at the fibroids to destroy (ablate) them.
Similarly, myolysis shrinks fibroids using an electric current or laser, while cryomyolysis freezes the fibroids. Endometrial ablation involves inserting a special instrument into your uterus to destroy the uterine lining using heat, electric current, hot water, or microwaves.
