Whether you suffer from the various symptoms of uterine fibroids or not such as pain and pressure, heavy bleeding, infertility, etc, in most cases, it depends on the type of uterine fibroids you have. Some fibroids cause no problems at all and the women who have them may even be unaware that they have them. For others, they may have issues which can sometimes be severe. In this article, we shall look at pedunculated fibroid tumors and whether you can have problems with them.
What are Pedunculated Fibroids?
These are usually identified by their position on the uterus. Pedunculated fibroid tumors are usually connected to the uterus by a stalk as shown in the image above. Due to their location and appearance, they can sometimes look like ovarian cysts and it can be difficult sometimes even with the help of CAT scans or MRIs to determine whether they are fibroids or ovarian cysts or other types of tumors.
This type of fibroid tumor can look like a big ball inside the uterus or outside the uterus.
With this type of fibroid tumor, it is possible for it to not produce any symptoms at all. When no symptoms are produced, the woman with pedunculated fibroids may not know that she has any fibroids at all.
But in some cases, symptoms can be produced depending on the behavior of this tumor. If this myoma is pressing against an abdominal structure, you may experience cramping that can lead to nausea and vomiting.
If other cases, this fibroid tumor can twist on its own stalk which can cause sharp pain that can even be severe abdominal pain that can require medical attention including surgery if it does not alleviate.
How to Treat Pedunculated Fibroid Tumors
If pedunculated fibroids are not causing you any problems, your doctor will suggest a “watchful waiting” approach that only requires occasional monitoring to see whether there are any changes in the tumor and usually not much treatment will be recommended if no symptoms are produced or no changes in the properties of this tumor are noted.
If on the other hand you are experiencing symptoms such as cramping or pains, surgery may be recommended by your gynecologist which can include myomectomy or when severe, a hysterectomy. Before you opt for surgery, do know that there are many natural methods that can offer you the relief you seek and in some cases can even shrink and eliminate the fibroids permanently without you having to go through the expense and side effects of surgery.
