About Fibroids


THIS SECTION about fibroids outlines the various types of fibroid tumours, how and why they grow, their symptoms and how these are influenced by mainly their location in the uterus. Possible complications with fibroids will be described as well as how they can be diagnosed and what tests are necessary.

Questions will be answered around the possible causes for fibroids and how symptoms like for instance haemorrhaging and clots develop. Perhaps by understanding more about the causes for fibroid development, we might be able to do something for prevention, if not for us then at least for our children. The keyword here is hormonal balance, and the picture is much more extensive than just Fibroid Disease. Surgery may eliminate all your symptoms, but what might happen in the long run …

In order to get healthy and stay healthy, it will help to understand what is happening to you, what treatment suits you most, and what the difference is between a fibroid and a malignant tumour.

While uterine fibroid tumours are benign, their impact on a woman’s life can be anything but – often resulting in hysterectomy or other invasive surgeries. Fortunately there are also less invasive options to treat fibroids and restore quality of life, with a minimum of risk. The section on Treatment Options will describe all this in detail.
