Private Fibroids Treatment and Removal Surgery
What Are Fibroids?
Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that can occur in or around the uterus (womb). Going private with MAS for investigations into uterine fibroids treatment and removal surgery, as well as other possible treatments such as embolisation, means that you can rest assured that your case will receive the full attention of our specialists, including consultant gynaecologist Mohammad Masood. Mr Masood is an expert in delicate gynaecological surgery such as fibroids removal.
Fibroids are made up of fibrous tissue and muscle. They can vary in shape and size and are common, affecting around 1 in 3 at some time in their life, although, according to research, they are most commonly found in females aged between 30 and 50. If you have had a child then you have a lower chance of developing them than someone who has not had a child and this chance gets lower and lower if you have more children.
As fibroids can be a condition without any obvious symptoms (only a third actually suffer from the symptoms) they can sometimes go undiagnosed until a routine gynaecological examination.
Should you suffer from any of the following it is advisable to get them investigated further at MAS Gynaecology:
- Lower back or abdominal pain
- Painful or heavy periods
- Discomfort or pain during or after sex
- An increased need to urinate compared to normal
In extremely rare cases, fibroid complications can lead to issues involving pregnancies or they could cause infertility.
Fibroids grow in the womb and can affect differing areas depending on the type of fibroid it is. The most common types are as follows:
- Intramural Fibroids – a fibroid which grows inside the muscle wall of the womb
- Subserosal Fibroids – this type of fibroid grows outside the womb wall growing towards the pelvis
- Submucosal fibroids – a fibroid which grows towards the cavity of the womb from the layer of muscle beneath the womb’s inner lining
- Pedunculated Fibroids – this is basically a Subserosal or Submucosal Fibroid which is joined to the womb by a small branch of tissue
Treatment can vary and is a matter that is individual to each and every woman. MAS Gynaecology works hard to ensure that every patient receives unique and attentive care and assistance throughout her experience with us.
