Fibroids

What are fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are the non-cancerous tumors that are made up of the uterine muscle and connective tissue from the wall of the uterus. Fibroids may grow as a single nodule or in clusters and can range in size from few mm to very large sizes. They may grow within the wall of the uterus or they may project into the endometrial cavity of the uterus or toward the outer surface of the uterus. Each patient with fibroids may have varying symptoms. Each fibroid is unique and one of a kind, which requires individualization of treatment options. The gynecologist also call fibroids by other names like - leiomyomas, fibromas, and myomas. Most likely a women may develop fibroids in between the age of 30-40.

Why do we have all these symptoms in fibroids?

It remains unclear exactly what causes fibroids. They may be related to estrogen levels.

During the reproductive years, estrogen and progesterone levels are higher.

When estrogen levels are high, especially during pregnancy, fibroids tend to increase in size. They are also more likely to develop when a woman is exposed to estrogen for long time.

Low estrogen levels can cause fibroids to shrink, such as during and after menopause.

Genetic factors are thought to impact the development of fibroids. Having a close relative with fibroids increases the chance of developing them.

Being overweight or obese increases the risk of fibroids.

Childbearing lowers the risk of developing fibroids. The risk reduces each time a woman gives birth.

Most of the symptoms that are due to fibroids depend on the type and size of the fibroids.

Diagnosis & Treatment

We at Queen’s Gynecology believe in attending our patients in detail. We provide bot surgical and non-surgical fibroid treatment in Delhi as per the intensity of symptoms, patient preferences and their overall safety. We prefer minimally invasive approach to improve the overall quality of our patient lives. If the female patient is above 40 Years of age and has children and she don’t want more children, she can choose to remove the uterus completely and not just the fibroid by a “Laparoscopic Hysterectomy”. If the patient is less than 40 Years of age and she is willing to have a baby in future then a “Laparoscopic Hysteroscopic or Myomectomy” procedure is be preferred for treatment. At Queen’s Gynecology we treat all types of conditions by both Laparoscopic Hysterectomy / Laparoscopic Myomectomy procedures.

At Queen's Gynecology we treat fibroids through a non-surgical treatment. In this treatment the blood supply to fibroid is restricted and blocked by a procedure called uterine artery embolization (UFE). The uterine artery embolization (UFE) procedure is not recommended for a woman who is willing to get pregnant. So there is no single correct treatment of fibroid as it differs from case to case basis.

Diagnosis of Fibroids is often accidental, during routine pelvic examination or while having an ultrasound. Transvaginal ultrasound, MRI are some of the preferred diagnostic modalities.
