FIBROIDS 101. WHAT.WHERE.WHEN. Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during a woman’s reproductive years. The medical term is leiomyomas (lie-o-my-O-muhs) or myomas. Fibroids aren’t associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer and almost never develop into cancer.
Fibroids range in size from seedlings, undetectable by the human eye, to bulky masses that can distort and enlarge the uterus. You can have a single fibroid or multiple ones. In extreme cases, multiple fibroids can expand the uterus so much that it reaches the rib cage (like a full term pregnancy) and can add weight (but not much). In women who have symptoms, the most common signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids include:
*Heavy menstrual bleeding
*Menstrual periods lasting more than 7 days
*Pelvic pressure or pain
*Difficulty emptying the bladder
*Backache or leg pains
They are very common in “African American” women. No cause has been proven as to why women get fibroids. Some thoughts are genetics, hormones, other growth factors, etc. Fibroids are generally classified by their location. Intramural fibroids grow within the muscular uterine wall. Submucosal fibroids bulge into the uterine cavity. Subserosal fibroids project to the outside of the uterus. When to see a doctor
