Uterine Fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus. They are seen in 80% of women by the age of 50. Fibroids can vary in size, number, and location, and may range from small, pea-sized nodules to large tumours that can distort the shape of the uterus.
Risk factors for fibroids include age, ethnicity, family history, obesity, and early onset of menstruation. Many women with fibroids do not experience any symptoms, but when symptoms do occur, they may include heavy menstrual bleeding, prolonged menstrual periods, pelvic pain or pressure, frequent urination, constipation, and difficulty getting pregnant.
The diagnosis of fibroids is usually made through a pelvic exam, ultrasound, or MRI. Treatment options for fibroids depend on the size, location, and severity of symptoms, as well as a woman's age and desire for future fertility. Treatment options may include medications, such as hormonal therapy, or procedures like uterine artery embolization or myomectomy. In severe cases, a hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus) may be recommended.
