Uterine Myomata

What is Uterine Myomata ?

Uterine myomata, also known as uterine fibroids, are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus. They are a common problem, affecting up to 80% of women during their lifetime. Uterine myomata can vary in size and location within the uterus, and may cause a variety of symptoms.

Common symptoms of Uterine Myomata

Some women with uterine myomata may experience heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pain or pressure in the pelvis, or frequent urination. In some cases, uterine myomata may cause infertility or complications during pregnancy.

The diagnosis of uterine myomata typically involves a pelvic examination and imaging studies such as ultrasound or MRI. In some cases, a biopsy may be necessary to rule out cancer.

Treatment of Uterine Myomata

Treatment for uterine myomata will depend on the size and location of the growths, as well as the severity of symptoms. In some cases, conservative management such as hormonal therapy or watchful waiting may be appropriate. In other cases, surgical interventions such as myomectomy or hysterectomy may be necessary to remove the growths and alleviate symptoms.

There are several new and innovative treatments available for uterine myomata, including uterine artery embolization, focused ultrasound, and MRI-guided ultrasound. These treatments offer minimally invasive options for women who wish to preserve their fertility or avoid major surgery.
