What are Fibroids?

Fibroids are noncancerous growths in the uterus that can cause pain and heavy menstrual bleeding in some women.

Fibroids, also known as uterine fibroids or leiomyomas, are noncancerous growths of the uterus that can vary in size and location. These benign tumors are made up of muscle and fibrous tissue and can develop within the uterine wall, on its surface, or even attached to the uterine wall by a stalk. While fibroids are usually not life-threatening, they can cause a range of symptoms, including pelvic pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, and reproductive issues, depending on their size and location. Treatment options vary and can include medication, minimally invasive procedures, or surgery, depending on the severity of symptoms and a patient's reproductive goals.

Procedures

Myomectomy

A surgical procedure performed to remove uterine fibroids while preserving the uterus. It is an option for individuals who have symptomatic fibroids (such as pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, or fertility issues) and wish to retain their uterus for future reproductive or personal reasons.

The fibroids are then carefully excised or shaved off the uterine wall, and the uterus is reconstructed. Myomectomy can help alleviate symptoms caused by fibroids and is often recommended when the removal of the entire uterus (hysterectomy) is not necessary or desired.

Hysterectomy

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure in which a woman's uterus is removed, and in some cases, the ovaries and fallopian tubes may also be removed.

Hysterectomy can be total (removing the uterus and cervix) or partial (removing only a portion of the uterus), and it may have significant physical and emotional implications.

The decision to undergo a hysterectomy is typically made in consultation with a healthcare provider based on the specific medical condition, individual health, and reproductive goals of the patient.
