Fibroids are the most frequently seen tumors of the female reproductive system. Fibroids, also known as uterine myomas, leiomyomas, or fibromas, are firm, compact tumors that are made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue that develop in the uterus. It is estimated that between 20 to 50 percent of women of reproductive age have fibroids, although not all are diagnosed.
GENETICS: It is seen that the cells of the fibroid have different genetic structure than the normal uterine cell. Uterine Fibroids also tend to run in families. So the daughter and sister of a fibroid-stricken woman is more likely to develop fibroids.
HORMONAL IMBALANCE: Two hormones namely Estrogen and Progesterone seem to stimulate the development of fibroids.
- Heavy or prolonged menstrual periods
- Abnormal bleeding between menstrual periods
- Pelvic pain (caused as the tumor presses on pelvic organs)
- Frequent urination
- Low back pain
