Small Endometrial Fibroids

Treatment from Gynecologists that Understand Your Body

Small endometrial fibroids are small, non-cancerous growths that may grow within the muscular wall of the uterus. These are masses that are separate from the uterine tissue, and are often developed during childbearing years in women. At times, small endometrial or uterine fibroids may go unnoticed completely, as the symptoms are minimal and a more in-depth examination may be required.

Other fibroids may grow so large that the uterus is distorted and may grow in size. Serious cases of endometrial fibroids may result in a distended or misshaped abdomen as the uterus moves toward the rib cage. Fibroids are often larger during pregnancy, but most either shrink or disappear after childbirth.

Statistics About Endometrial Fibroids

At some point in their lives, it is estimated that close to 75% of all women will develop fibroids. Again, many remain unaware of the condition until the fibroids grow to a large size or a doctor performs a full pelvic exam and the fibroids are uncovered.

Development of Fibroids

Research suggests that several things may be involved in the development of fibroids, although a direct cause remains unclear.

  • Lower levels of hormones like progesterone and estrogen in post-menopausal women
  • Genetic or hereditary factors
  • Growth factors involved in tissue maintenance

Symptoms of Small Endometrial Fibroids

Common symptoms of fibroids are:

  • Heavy bleeding during menstrual periods
  • Constipation
  • Backaches
  • Leg pains
  • Frequent need to urinate
  • Menstrual periods that last longer than a week
  • Pain or pressure in the pelvic area

Treatment Plans for Fibroid Removal

Minor cases of fibroids may not be treated at all, but more severe cases can be treated with noninvasive surgeries or medications.

The surgeons at miVIP offer laparoscopic fibroid removal surgery to women that suffer from debilitating cases of this condition. With the help of a small camera, our surgeons can access your fibroids through several tiny incisions, minimizing scarring, blood loss and recovery time.

Long Term Prognosis

The only way to ensure the complete removal of fibroids is with a hysterectomy, as growths may return even after they have been removed. Discuss your treatment options with your doctor to determine which option is correct for your phase of life.

If new fibroids development after treatment, you are able to undergo a similar procedure or treatment to remove the newer growths.
