Fibroids: FAQs

At Premiere OB/GYN in Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, and Plantation, FL, our team of professionals has worked on many health issues over the years. For example, we’ve treated many fibroids to support those who need them. If you’re concerned about this problem, here’s what you need to know about them and how they may affect your overall health.

What Are These Growths?

These growths grow from the muscle tissue throughout the uterus and cause mild symptoms, such as heavy menstrual bleeding and back pain. However, some people may experience heavy pelvic pain, pressure, and even anemia. If you experience any severe problems related to this condition, contact us ASAP to ensure you get the treatment you deserve.

When Do They Occur?

These growths may occur at any age in a woman’s uterus but usually grow in the 30s and 40s. Typically, many women will develop a fibroid or several by the time they reach their 50s. They typically attach to the uterine wall by a stem-like structure and grow throughout the uterus. Some women may have only a few, while others may develop multiple growths throughout their bodies.

Are These Growths Cancerous?

A fibroid is usually not cancerous but may still cause pain and some discomfort. However, some fibroids may turn cancerous for Pembroke Pines, FL, women. As a result, it’s important to stay on top of this issue and work with your physician to ensure that you’re safe. Our team at Premiere OB/GYN will do what they can to help you through this process.

Will Bleeding Last Long?

When you have a fibroid or more in your uterus, your menstrual period may seem to last longer because the fibroid itself may cause bleeding. Typically, it may bleed for 8-9 days or more, depending on the severity of your condition. As a result, it’s important to make sure that you’re prepared for this challenge and to work with an OGBYN who understands your needs.

Can I Treat Them?

Typically, mild symptoms receive medications like a lose-dose birth control pill, various contraceptives, and more. Some women even receive hormonal treatments to minimize their development. In some cases, surgery may be necessary, including removing each fibroid or even removing the uterus itself if the growths turn cancerous and threaten your life.
