3 Signs Of Fibroid Growth In Women And Its Causes

0

Fibroids are tumours made of smooth muscle cells and fibrous connective tissue. This medical condition occurs in the uterus or womb of the female. It is estimated that 70-80% of women will experience fibroids in their lifetime. However, not everyone will develop symptoms or need treatment.

Fibroids range in size from seedlings, which cannot be seen by the human eye, to bulky masses that can cause an enlargement in the uterus. A woman can have a single fibroid or multiple ones. In extreme cases, multiple fibroids can expand the uterus so much that it reaches the rib cage and can add weight.

1. Frequent urination

Women who suffer from fibroids experience pressure on the bowel and bladder. This can lead to constipation, frequent urination and incontinence. In some cases, fibroids can pressure the tubes which carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder (ureter), causing kidney dysfunction.

2. Low back pain

Low back and leg pain are most common with fibroids, which grow on the outside of the uterus. If the fibroid is positioned on the back of the uterus, it is very close to the spinal column. If it becomes large enough it can pressure or pinch the nerves in that area, leading to fibroid pain.

3. Excessive pain during menstruation

Fibroids increase the surface area of the uterine lining, which can make menstruation cramps and bleeding to become more intense. Fibroids also reduce the uterus' ability to stop bleeding, as it does during a woman's regular menstrual cycle.
