If you are a woman near about 30 years of age then this article is a must read for you. Millions of women across the world suffer from excessive bleeding until they realize the reason for it. If you are suffering from excessive bleeding then you better consult gynecologist as there is very possibility that you might be suffering from Uterine Fibroids. These are benign tumors that are formed in the uterus. Even though they are made up of the similar smooth muscle fibers just like the uterine wall (myometrium), they are several times denser in comparison to normal myometrium. These are semi-round or round in shape.

These are usually described depending on the location in womb. Submucosal (submucous) fibroids are found in the inner part of the uterine cavity beyond the uterus lining. Subserosal fibroids are found below the serosa, the lining membrane located on the exterior of the organ. Intramural fibroids are found within the wall of the uterus. Doctors perform comprehensive test to find out about the exact location of these fibroids. The location of fibroids varies from one person to another.  

It is important for you to know that most of the women experience no symptoms of these fibroids.  As most of the women experience no symptoms identifying the condition is not easy. Often it is at a very later stage that the condition is diagnosed.  However, saying that there are no symptoms at all for Uterine Fibroids Tumor. Excessive uterine bleeding is one of the most common symptoms of the condition. If the tumors obstruct the flow of blood to the lining or are near the lining of the uterine, they can lead to not only heavy periods but also painful ones. Also, they cause sopping between menses and prolonged periods.  There is very possibility that women suffering from abnormal periods might develop iron deficiency. Deteriorating uterine fibroids cab lead to localized, severe pain. 

According to studies conducted, it has been found that fibroids can cause several symptoms on the basis of their location and size within the uterus. Also, symptoms depend on their proximity with the adjacent pelvic organs. Fibroids that are large can lead to:

  • Pressure on the rectum with severe pain at the time of defecation
  • Pelvic pain
  • Pressure
  • Pressure on the bladder with obstructed or frequent urination

There is no exact reason as to why women develop these fibroids. Alterations in the growth factor system, genetic abnormalities and tissue response to injury play a vital role in the development of tumours. Uterine Fibroids Surgery is the last resort. It is only when doctors realize that medications have failed to show any kind of improvement that they suggest surgery.
