What is Uterine Fibroid

The Most Advanced State Of Art Daycare Surgery Centre In Delhi/NCR.

Fibroids are abnormal growths that develop in or on a woman’s uterus. Sometimes these tumours become quite large and cause severe abdominal pain and heavy periods. In other cases, they cause no signs or symptoms at all.

The growths are typically benign, or noncancerous. The cause of fibroids is unknown. Fibroids are also known by the following names:
•    Leiomyomas
•    Myomas
•    Uterine Myomas
•    Fibromas

The size, shape and location of the fibroids can vary from one woman to another. They can be found in the outer wall of the uterus, inside the uterus or attached to it like a stem. A woman can have just one fibroid or many of various sizes. It can remain small and suddenly grow rapidly over the years.

Cause Uterine Fibroid

The Most Advanced State Of Art Daycare Surgery Centre In Delhi/NCR.

It’s unclear why fibroids develop, but several factors may influence their formation. Hormones- Estrogen and progesterone are the hormones produced by the ovaries. They cause the uterine lining to regenerate during each menstrual cycle and may stimulate the growth of fibroids.

Family history - Fibroids may run in the family. If your mother, sister, or grandmother has a history of this condition, you may develop it as well.
Pregnancy- Pregnancy increases the production of estrogen and progesterone in your body. Fibroids may develop and grow rapidly while you’re pregnant.
Consumption of alcohol (particularly beer) 
Uterine infections
High blood pressure

  • Severe pain


    Severe pain or very heavy bleeding that needs emergency surgery.

    This can cause blocked blood vessels that feed the tumour. You may need surgery if this happens.

  • Anemia


    Anemia (not having enough red blood cells) from heavy bleeding.

  • Urinary tract infections


    If the fibroid presses on the bladder, it can be hard to empty your bladder completely.

  • Infertility, in rare cases.


    • If you are pregnant, there's a small risk that fibroids may cause complications:
    • You may deliver your baby early because there is not enough room in your womb.

    • You may have heavy bleeding right after giving birth.

Diagnosis

For a proper diagnosis, you’ll need to see a experienced gynaecologist to get a pelvic exam. Dr. Meenakshi Banerjee, is one of the best gynaecologist in Delhi/Ncr. This pelvic exam is used to check the condition, size, and shape of your uterus. You may also need other tests, which include:

Ultrasound- An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of your uterus on a screen. This will allow your doctor to see its internal structures and any fibroids in uterus. A transvaginal ultrasound, in which the ultrasound wand is inserted into the vagina, may provide clearer pictures since its closer to the uterus during this procedure.

Pelvic MRI- This in-depth imaging test produces pictures of your uterus, ovaries, and other pelvic organs.

Hysterosalpingography- Hysterosalpingography (HSG) uses a dye to highlight the uterine cavity and fallopian tubes on X-ray images. Your doctor may recommend it if infertility is a concern. This test can help your doctor determine if your fallopian tubes are open or are blocked and can show some submucosal fibroids.

Hysteroscopy- This is a surgical procedure performed to gain direct visualization of the uterine cavity. It does not visualize or treat fibroids outside the cavity.

Medicine

Medications for uterine fibroids target hormones that regulate your menstrual cycle, treating symptoms such as heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pressure. They don't eliminate fibroids, but may shrink them like 
•    Oral contraceptives, can help control menstrual bleeding, but they don't reduce fibroid size.

•   Intrauterine devices (IUDs) that release hormones to help reduce heavy bleeding and pain.
•   Non hormonal and antispasmodic medication is used to reduce the amount of blood flow.
•   Hormone shots to help shrink fibroids by stopping ovulation. Most often, this therapy is used only for a short time to shrink fibroids before surgery. 
•   Iron supplements to prevent or treat anemia due to heavy periods.
•   Pain relievers such as ibuprofen or naproxen for cramps or pain.

Surgery

Since most fibroids stop growing or may even shrink as you approach menopause. "Watchful waiting." in this condition monitors your symptoms carefully to be sure that there are no significant changes. If your fibroids are large or cause significant symptoms, treatment may be an option. Treatment will be based on your age, fertility goals, the number and size of your fibroids, any previous fibroids treatments, and other health conditions. PELVINIC offers to their patient’s complete evaluation with discussion of different treatment modalities individualised as per need instead of limiting their option. We have a well equipped gynecology and laparscopic gynecology department to aid the detection and the treatment of the uterine fibroids. Over the years the centres have been instrumental in performing various surgeries for infertility management and pain management caused due to uterine fibroids. Numerous women have been treated medically also.

Surgery and procedures used to treat fibroids include:
•    Hysteroscopy -- This procedure can remove fibroids growing inside the uterus.
•    Endometrial Ablation - This procedure is sometimes used to treat heavy bleeding associated with fibroids. It works best when the fibroids are small in size. It often stops menstruation completely.
•    Uterine Embolization -- This procedure stops the blood supply to the fibroid, causing it to shrink and die. This may be a good option if you wish to avoid surgery and are not planning to become pregnant.
•    Myomectomy -- This surgery removes the fibroids from the uterus. This also may be a good choice if you want to have children. It will not prevent new fibroids from growing. If your condition worsens, or if no other treatments work, you may suggest for a hysterectomy.
•    Hysterectomy -- This surgery removes the uterus completely. It may be an option if you do not want children, medicines do not work, and you cannot have any other procedures.

Aftercare

•    Try to rest as much as possible for two weeks.
•    Avoid standing for more than a few minutes at a time.
•    Continue to take your medications, and follow strictly the instructions on taking your antibiotics.
•    After two weeks, aim to walk for about 10 minutes every day, unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

•    Depending on the type of surgery, you can return to work within two to six weeks (abdominal myomectomy takes the longest recovery time).
