According to Montgomery County’s OB-GYN, Dr. Rania Ibrahim, uterine fibroids are tumors that typically develop during a woman’s childbearing years and can actually lead to an increased risk of uterine cancer.
Although as many as one out of every four women suffers from uterine fibroids at some point in their life, the majority of cases remain undiagnosed because there are often no visible signs of the condition. In fact, they’re often discovered accidentally during a standard ultrasound or pelvic exam.
If you are suffering with pain and/or discomfort as a result of uterine fibroids, your OB-GYN can prescribe therapy and surgery to help shrink or remove them.
The most common symptoms reported by our patients include:
- Heavier and longer-lasting periods;
- Pressure and pain in the pelvic area;
- Urinating more frequently than usual;
- Difficult bowel movements;
- Pain in the leg and/or back.
Tests and Diagnosis for Uterine Fibroids
Your OB-GYN can confirm the presence of uterine fibroids during a standard pelvic exam. They often appear as abnormalities in the patient’s uterus and an ultrasound is typically used to confirm the presence location and size of the tumors.
Treatment of Uterine Fibroids
Although isn’t a single treatment that’s better than the others, patients who experience uterine fibroids have a number of options. While your OB-GYN may recommend watchful waiting as a method of treatment, uterine fibroids can be effectively treated with medications or surgery.
