Fibroids also called as Myomas, arise from the muscle of the uterus and are one of the common incidental findings on ultrasound in females during their reproductive periods. Most of the women with fibroids have no symptoms. Common symptoms can range from heavy and painful menstrual cycles to urinary discomfort or pressure feeling to swelling in abdomen if too large .Though fibroids are not usually the cause of infertility but in about 3-5 % women can account for inability to conceive.
But not every fibroid needs removal. Treatment is required after evaluation of fibroid depending upon the location, type, size and symptoms of patients.
Various non surgical options are also available ranging from medicines for pain and symptomatic relief, medicines to decrease the size, uterine artery embolization and radio frequency ablation.
Those not responding to medical treatment generally requires removal of fibroid (myomectomy)and in few cases removal of uterus(hysterectomy).
PELVINIC offers to their patient’s complete evaluation with discussion of different treatment modalities individualised as per need instead of limiting their option to myomectomy or hysterectomy.
