Women's health: Uterine Fibroid
Post by on Monday, September 13, 2021
Among women of childbearing age, uterine fibroids are the most common noncancerous tumours to be found. Uterine fibroids are made of muscle cells and other tissues that grow in and around the uterus lining. The exact cause of fibroids remains unknown. African-American ethnicity and obesity are both risk factors. Fibroid symptoms include:-
Heavy or painful periods, or bleeding between menstrual periods.
A feeling of "fullness" in the lower abdomen.
Painful sexual intercourse.
Pain in the lower back
Reproductive problems like infertility, miscarriages and preterm labour.
Women with no symptoms are rare, however. That's why it's so important to see your doctor for regular checkups.
