Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths that form on the wall of the uterus, typically occurring in women of the reproductive age. Many women develop fibroids but are unaware of them because they often cause no symptoms and seldom require treatment. In other cases, fibroids can cause noticeable symptoms and should be diagnosed and treated by a qualified gynecologist.
Some women who develop uterine fibroids may experience the following symptoms:
Along with pelvic exams and ultrasounds, uterine fibroids can be confirmed with hysteroscopy, in which a thin device is inserted through the vagina and the opening of the cervix to provide doctors a view inside the uterus.
Many treatment options exist for uterine fibroids. While some fibroids may cause no noticeable symptoms, women should consult a qualified gynecologist. When uncomfortable symptoms do occur, options may include prescription medications. In some cases surgery such as myomectomy may be necessary to remove fibroids to reduce or eliminate symptoms.
The experienced team at The Institute for Gynecologic Care at Mercy can help you determine what treatments are best suited for your needs.
