Fibromyoma is a benign hormone-dependent uterine tumor that develops from muscle-connective tissue. Among the «female» diseases, she is stably the «bronze» winner of the TOP - dozens (after erosion and colpitis). Sometimes fibromyoma is called a «disease of female careerism», since the peak of its development falls to 30-35 years; and it occurs more often in women who postpone pregnancy until better times.
Symptoms of fibromyoma
Quite often, the disease has an asymptomatic course. The woman does not feel much discomfort and is not in a hurry to see a gynecologist . And such ladies are about 20%. Complaints of pain and pressure in the lower abdomen, an increase in menstrual flow, as a rule, arise when myomatous nodes have already begun to grow inside the uterus.
Factors that provoke the development of fibromyoma are:
- chronic inflammatory processes;
- hereditary predisposition.
Treatment of fibromyoma
Treatment of the disease depends largely on the growth rate of nodes, their location, and the presence of complications. Conservative treatment aims to slow the growth of the tumor and facilitate the clinical course of the disease. But, unfortunately, it is not always possible to overcome fibromyoma without the help of a surgeon. The volume of surgery is largely regulated by the age of the patient. Up to 40 years, usually remove the middle myomatous nodes (diameter 2-5 cm.). Before they begin to go into growth intensively. After 40 years and in menopause, according to surgical indications, it makes sense to talk about the removal of the myomatous uterus. In this case, the specialists of the Bogoliuby Reproductive Medical Center perform supravaginal amputation of the uterus and laparoscopic extirpation of the uterus.
