Uterine fibroids operations
Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that result from abnormal growth of cells in the uterine muscle. Hormonal disorders and genetic tendencies contribute to their formation. In the first phase of growth, uterine fibroids do not have to cause any discomfort, so without careful examination they are often impossible to recognize, and a thorough diagnosis is necessary. Without proper diagnosis and treatment, fibroids can develop into a malignant tumor – sarcoma. That is why it is so important to undergo surgery to remove uterine fibroids. The type of surgery and the method of removal of fibroids depends on many factors and is consulted with the surgeon prior to surgery.
