>Uterine Fibroids are non-cancerous (benign) tumors that grow from the muscle layers of the uterus (womb). Fibroids are growths of smooth muscle and fibrous tissue. Fibroids can vary in size, from that of a bean to as large as a melon. Overweight and obese women are at significantly higher risk of developing fibroids, compared to women of normal weight. The medical name for the fibroid removal surgery is myomectomy. The surgery is done either through an abdominal route or through laparoscopic method. The decision of kind of surgery to be done depends upon the size of fibroid and its location. Apart from the fibroid size it is whether the family is complete or not needs to be understood.
Myomectomy or fibroid removal surgery is recommend if the fibroids are causing symptoms such as:
Myomectomy is an option for women with fibroids who wish to get pregnant in the future, or who want to keep their uterus for another reason. Apart from this in case you are having any of the above symptoms due to fibroids and they are hampering the chances of pregnancy then the gynaecologist in India would recommend to go for a fibroid surgery with uterus preservation. If the size of the fibroid is large then the laparoscopic surgery may not be recommended as it may lead to hysterectomy in case of excessive bleed.
