Fibroids are non-carcinogenic tumors that grow in the muscle tissue of the uterus in women. About 0.5% of fibroids can convert to malignant tumors, but even if they don’t, they can cause other problems with the female reproductive organs. Fibroids affect 20-40% of women over 30, but can also affect younger women and women after menopause.
Fibroids are treated surgically and may reduce in size on their own, but if they are diagnosed after menopause, they might transform to malignant tumors.
The main causes of fibroids
Although the exact cause of the fibroids is still not known, there are several precursors that may lead to uterine fibroids. The first factor is being black – according to statistics, 50% of all fibroid cases affect African-American women. Fibroids can also be hereditary – most women that have a family member with fibroids develop them as well. Besides these factors, your hormones can also play a part. According to studies, women with fibroids have a higher level of estrogen than women who don’t develop the tumors.
The symptoms of fibroids depend on the size, location and direction of growth of the tumor, but these are the most usual ones:
Heavy and long periods are the most common symptom of uterine myoma. Besides the heavy bleeding, you may also find clots in your period. Although a common symptom of fibroids, heavy and irregular menstruation can also indicate other reproductive problems.
Pain in the abdomen
30% of all women with fibroids report severe or mild pain in the abdomen, especially while standing.
Pressure in the abdomen
Due to the tumor pressing up the internal walls of the reproductive organs, you may experience pressure in the bladder and intestines. You might also experience painful urination and constipation.
