The information on fibroid tumors
Fibroid tumors, also known as "fibroids", are benign growths in the uterus. The different types of fibroid tumors grow in different areas of the uterus and each can cause different symptoms. Not all fibroids cause symptoms, but if they do, the surgical and non-surgical treatments are available.
There are three types of tumors fibroids: subserosal, intramural and submucosal. They are identified by their location and direction of growth in the uterus.
Uterine fibroids are found in the muscles that form the wall of the uterus. Fibroids Subserol form near the outer wall and pushed out. Intramural fibroids deeper into the muscle. And submucosal fibroids appear near the inner wall of the uterus.
Fibroid tumors vary in size from 1/4 inch to 6 inches or more in diameter. Large tumors can cause the uterus to expand and increase the abdomen.
Depending on their size and location, fibroid tumors can cause heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic and back pain, pain during intercourse, and the pressure on the bladder causing frequent urination.
Treatment is not always necessary, but options include thermal ablation to destroy fibroids, nonsurgical embolization to block blood flow to tumors that cause his death, and in some cases, a hysterectomy to remove the uterus.
