Fibroids

Fibroids, also knowns as myoma, is a gynecological condition with benign tumors that can cause different types of symptoms, some women can even be asymptomatic.

What are fibroids?

Fibroids are benign tumors that develop in the muscle tissue of the uterus. These tumors are common and can vary in size and number, with their location affecting the symptoms.

How quickly do fibroids grow?

The growth rate of fibroids varies. Some fibroids may grow slowly over time, while others may increase in size more rapidly. Hormonal factors and genetic predispositions can influence the growth rate.

Fibroid symptoms

Common symptoms that may occur with fibroids include:

  • Increased menstrual bleeding: Fibroids can cause heavy and prolonged menstrual periods, leading to increased bleeding.
  • Pelvic pain: Some women may experience pain or discomfort in the pelvic area, especially during menstruation.
  • Pressure in the abdomen: Larger fibroids can cause a feeling of pressure or fullness in the abdomen.
  • Frequent urination: Fibroids pressing against the bladder can result in increased frequency of urination.
  • Swollen abdomen: Fibroids can result in a swollen abdomen or a feeling of bloating.
  • Pain during sexual activity: Pain or discomfort during intercourse can be a symptom in some cases.

Many women with fibroids may also be asymptomatic and not experience any clear discomfort. A proper medical assessment is crucial to diagnose and manage fibroids in an individually tailored manner. If you suspect you have fibroids, consult your general practitioner or healthcare provider for further evaluation.
