What Are Fibroids?
posted: Jan. 19, 2023.
Fibroids are an issue that many women deal with but they may never realize it. Fibroids can sometimes cause no issues at all and can go completely undetected. Many women don’t even know what fibroids are. Sometimes, fibroids can be painful and cause complications that could be difficult to deal with on a daily basis. Dr. Anya Rose and Dr. Megan Gau at Rose Women’s Health in Arcadia, CA, can explain what fibroids are and how they can be dealt with.
Dealing with Fibroids
Fibroids are not a commonly discussed issue and many women may never know what they are and that they have them. Fibroids are benign growths that occur in the walls of the uterus. These growths vary in size and in quantity. You could have one or many at a time. Often, you may not realize that many of the issues you’ve been dealing with are because of these fibroids.
If your OBGYN in Arcadia, CA, detects fibroids during an exam, they’ll start discussing any symptoms you may be experiencing. If there are no severe issues, fibroids can be left alone. If you discuss some issues that may be linked to your fibroids, then treatment will be a topic of interest. Treatment will vary depending on your symptoms and severity of your fibroids.
Treatment may consist of medications that are designed to shrink the fibroids and ease some of the pain and irritation you may deal with. If medication doesn’t work, surgery may be needed to remove the fibroids from your uterus.
