Uterine Fibroids Study

Uterine Fibroids Study at Mount Vernon Clinical Research

What are uterine fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years in women. Also called fibromyomas, leiomyomas or myomas, uterine fibroids are not associated with an increased risk of uterine cancer and almost never develop into cancer.

As many as 3 out of 4 women have uterine fibroids sometime during their lives, but most are unaware of them because they often cause no symptoms. Half of all women have fibroids by the age of 50. Your doctor may discover fibroids incidentally during a pelvic exam or prenatal ultrasound.

In general, uterine fibroids seldom require treatment. Medical therapy and surgical procedures can shrink or remove fibroids if you have discomfort or troublesome symptoms. Rarely, fibroids can require emergency treatment if they cause sudden, sharp pelvic pain or profuse menstrual bleeding.  Fibroids can be so tiny that you need a microscope to see them.  However, they can grow very large.  They may fill the entire uterus, and may weigh several pounds. Although it is possible for just one fibroid to develop, usually there are more than one.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of uterine fibroids are:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Pelvic cramping or pain with periods
  • Sensation of fullness or pressure in lower abdomen
  • Pain during intercourse

Treatment options

Treatment for uterine fibroids depends on various things including your age, general health, severity of symptoms, type of fibroids and whether you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. The best solution for treatment is to visit your primary physician for a pelvic exam so a proper examination can be conducted.

Uterine Fibroids

Uterine Fibroids

How common are uterine fibroids?

Three out of four women will develop uterine fibroids during their childbearing years. These benign growths can develop on the inside or outer part of the uterus. Fibroid development is triggered by hormones produced by the female reproductive system.

Size variation

The variation in size ranges—from extremely small you cannot even see them, to so large that they can increase the size of the uterus. The growth rate of fibroids can vary as well. Some may grow rapidly while others grow very slowly, and some may not grow at all. Symptoms of uterine fibroids may vary as well.

Symptoms

Symptoms include heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure, increased urination, anemia (due to blood loss), leg or back pain, and even constipation.  Size and location of the fibroid can dictate the signs and severity of the symptoms.

Risk factors

Uterine fibroids do not increase the chances of developing uterine cancer, and they rarely develop into cancerous growths. They do however range in size and quantity. Risk factors such as heredity, race, the onset of early menstruation, and even diet can significantly increase the chances of uterine fibroid development. Fibroids do not typically interfere with pregnancy, but there is that possibility depending upon the location of the fibroid. Fibroids, which are hormone-based, often shrink after menopause.
