If you are struggling with lower back pain and your periods are longer than usual, you may be dealing with fibroids on the uterus. Fibroids are small tumors composed of fibrous connective tissue and smooth muscle cells. While this sounds scary, it is often very treatable, and fibroids very rarely mean fibroid cancer. Fibroids should be treated, however, as they can cause significant discomfort. Cohen Medical Practice offers safe, fast, effective fibroids treatment in Manhattan and Queens.
What Are the Causes?
While it is impossible to predict who will develop fibroids and when; we know that they are caused by an excess of estrogen and progesterone secretion. There are a variety of genetic and hormonal factors that may lead to fibroid growth. Risk factors include pregnancy, being overweight, and being over the age of 30.
What Are the Symptoms?
You may first notice fibroids if you are experiencing lower back or pelvic pain. Other symptoms may include abnormal or longer than normal periods, an increase in urination, and heavier bleeding. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend you schedule an appointment with Cohen Medical Practice immediately for a consultation and possible diagnostic hysteroscopy.
How Do We Address Fibroids?
The main way to treat fibroids is through a hysteroscopy. First, a diagnostic hysteroscopy determines whether or not you have them. This is simply inserting a very thin tube called a hysteroscope into the vagina to examine the cervix and uterus for fibroids. Then, if fibroids are discovered, an operative hysteroscopy can remove them. At Cohen Medical Practice, we offer a procedure called the MyoSure® Minimally Invasive Myomectomy. This is a very simple hysteroscopic removal procedure that can be performed in as little as 20 minutes.
