What is the curse of fibroid?

What is the curse of fibroid?

Fibroid=pelvic pain: Fibroid tumors (uterus muscle tumors) are a common cause of pelvic pain. Location of fibroids also contribute to the many symptoms they cause. If a fibroid is near the cervix, dyspaurenia (painful sex) may occur. Fibroids near the lining of the uterus cause increased vaginal bleeding during periods and decreased fertility. A gynecologist can diagnose fibroids with ultrasound and treat accordingly.

Uterine fibroids are the most common pelvic tumor in women. 1 of every 3 women of child-bearing age have these tumors and up to 80% of african-american women have fibroids. They are often asymptomatic but they can also cause significant symptoms. It is the most common cause of heavy menstrual bleeding. Pelvic pain and increased urinary frequency ...Read more

I'm wearing iucd and just discovered I have fibroid should I remove d iucd?

No: If I understand you correctly, you're asking if it's okay to have an intrauterine contraceptive device and a fibroid at the same time, and the answer to that is yes, it's definitely okay to have the iud in place.

Is 5.8 CM fibroid large?

Fibroid Size.: That is a 2.28 inch fibroid. I don't know if there is an official size cut off to determine 'large'. However, it certainly isn't as big as some fibroids - they can be the size of a mellon.

What is a degenerated fibroid?

Dying fibroid: When a fibroid outgrows its blood supply, areas of it can die off. This event can be very painful to a patient, even causing her to go to the Emergency Room. For degenerating fibroid (s) on the right side, this can even simulate appendicitis. Degenerating fibroids often eventually calcify which can be detected on pelvic imaging (exs. X-ray, CT scan, ultrasound).

What is a benign fibroid adanoma?

What is a benign fibroid adanoma?

Benign breast tumor: A benign fibroadenoma is the most common breast tumor and is more common in women <30 years of age. It is a solitary, solid, mobile mass with well-defined edges, and the size may vary with your menstrual cycle. A fine needle biopsy confirms the benign nature, and treatment is usually surgical excision.

Can a 1cm fibroid cause symptoms?

Unlikely: Anyone can get a uterine fibroid, which is an overgrowth of muscle cells in the shape of a ball. Like moles on the skin, they come in different sizes/shapes; RARELY cancerous. You only need surgery if you have symptoms like pain/pressure/incontinence/bleeding/bloating. Size/location don't matter. Lupron (leuprolide) or embolization are ways to control w/out surgery. US follow up is very important.

Anterior fibroid measuring 3.5cm?

Anterior fibroid measuring 3.5cm?

Not enough info: Fibroids are very common benign tumors. They are found in a woman's uterus and can be discovered during a routine pelvic exam or pelvic ultrasound. If there are no symptoms (exs. Heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, increased urinary frequency) no treatment is necessary unless it is determined that the fibroid is preventing a fertility patient from getting pregnant or causing her to miscarry.

How serious is a fibroid at 4.5 cm?

Notnecessarily at all: Size of fibroids not important per se. Location more important. Fibroids along uterine lining (submucosal) often cause heavy bleeding (particularly those 4.5cm). Fibroids on outer part of uterus (subserosal) often cause bulk-related symptoms (urinary frequency, pelvic pain) by pressing on adjacent structures. In between those (intramural) may or may not cause symptoms. If so, see fibroid specialist

Sub mucoasal fibroid: No, not serious. Not a sign of cancer or anything else scary.

Does a fibroid ever go away on its own?

Yes: Occasionally, usually after a full term delivery, a fibroid may undergo degeneration due to lack of blood supply caused by the uterus' major shrinkage in size immediately post partum. If the fibroid gets no blood, it stops growing and dies. Natural mechanisms then cause the dead tissue to be re-absorbed and the fibroid "goes away on its own". In general however, they don't go away.
