Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are common benign masses that can be found in both young and older women. They are likely caused by genetic and hormonal factors and produce symptoms based on size and where they are located in the uterus. Fibroids can cause excessive menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain or fullness, frequent urination, pain with intercourse, and sometimes result in difficulty with pregnancy.  Treatment for symptomatic fibroids can be done with hysterectomy, myomectomy or Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE).
