Fibroid tumors are some of the most common benign tumors of the uterus that affect women. These masses can occur in up to 80% of women depending on your ethnic background therefore it is something that most women do face in their lifetime. Fibroids can cause a variety of symptoms from pressure and pain to heavy bleeding and have even been implicated in infertility.
There are a variety of options that can be employed to deal with fibroids from dietary and lifestyle management choices to minimally invasive options and even more advanced surgical procedures. Some studies estimate that up to 90% of hysterectomies that are completed for fibroids are not necessary. We encourage you to learn more about this common tumor that affects many women and also what treatment options you may have available to you other than a hysterectomy.
