What are Fibroids?

Fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) growths within the uterine muscle. Fibroids are also known as myomas or leiomyomas. Fibroids are extremely common and approximately 50% of women will have fibroids. Most fibroids are small and asymptomatic, but 40% of women with fibroids will present with some symptoms.

The cause of fibroids is not known. Fibroids are more common in women who do not have children and also common in Afro-Caribbean women. Fibroids are known to be estrogen-dependent. That’s why they grow in size during pregnancy and shrink after menopause.

Most women with fibroids may not even know of their presence. Approximately only 40% of fibroids will cause some symptoms. These symptoms depend on the location of fibroids, their size, changes within the fibroids, and pregnancy status.

How can I detect Uterine Fibroids?

Some women have fibroids but never realize it because they have no symptoms. Other women may notice one or more of the following signs:

  • Dull aching pain in the abdomen, back, or legs
  • Periods that are heavy and painful, sometimes so heavy that you develop iron-deficiency anemia
  • Constipation
  • The need to pass urine more frequently
  • Difficulties becoming sexually aroused or engaging in intercourse

Fibroids FAQs

Fibroids are almost always not cancerous – what is known as benign. Less than one in a thousand turn into cancer. When this happens it is called leiomyosarcoma.

Small to medium-sized fibroids without symptoms usually will not pose a risk to the pregnancy. Because of the increased level of hormones and blood flow to the uterus during pregnancy, fibroids can grow in size, which can begin to cause discomfort and feelings of pressure or pain.

Large fibroids can increase the risk of several types of childbirth, including cesarean section (c-section), breech presentation, placental abruption, and preterm delivery.

For most women, fibroids won’t cause infertility. In some cases, it can. About 10 percent of women who cannot bear children have fibroids.

Fibroids can interfere with conception by reducing the space inside the uterus or the uterus’s blood flow. They can also alter the uterine lining and sometimes obstruct the fallopian tubes.

Usually, fibroid treatment is successful at the dresses fibroids and the pain caused by them. However, more fibroids still have the risk of developing. These new fibroids can cause the same types of symptoms and can require additional care as well.

Fibroids are most often noticed during a routine pelvic exam by a doctor. Once one is suspected, it is confirmed and diagnosed with a scan. MRI’s and ultrasounds are the most common scans for this.

Five Clinics providers have experience and skill in the diagnosis and treatment of fibroids in central Ohio. Scans can be performed quickly and are accurately read by our team to determine whether you have fibroids.

Though research is ongoing in this area, diet is thought to be linked by many researchers to the development of fibroids. Red meat has been commonly linked to a higher risk for fibroids.

You may be familiar with radiofrequency ablation as it pertains to vein health, but it can also be used effectively in the treatment of fibroids. It is a minimally invasive approach using the power of heat. It can be conducted as an outpatient procedure. 

In radiofrequency ablation, heat is used on fibroid tissue to cause the death of the cells. Once cells die in this type of situation, they are naturally reabsorbed into the body.

Uterine fibroid embolization and uterine artery embolization are synonymous terms. This is a minimally invasive procedure for the treatment of uterine fibroids.  we use a flexible tube known as a catheter to inject anabolic agents into the uterine arteries, which are responsible for the supply of blood to the fibroids and the uterus. The goal of this procedure is to block the fibroid blood vessels. This will starve the fibroids, causing them to eventually shrink and die.

Patients with fibroids are examined at the fibroid clinic and given an MRI scan of the pelvis. The results of scans and any other investigations are discussed in a dedicated fibroid multidisciplinary team meeting. Here, doctors, specialists, and nursing staff work together to create a tailored care plan for patients, looking holistically at each case.

Based on the images and type of fibroids, and your symptoms and preferences, your consultant will then recommend the most suitable path. Most treatments are delivered in the office setting and can be done in under an hour.
