Your gynecologist has recommended that you undergo surgery to remove vaginal fibroids. But what does that actually mean?
Fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that grow from the inner or outer wall of the uterus. They are quite common - as many as 20% of women over 30 will develop fibroids sometime during their lifetimes.
In most cases fibroids do not cause any discomfort and are never detected. Occasionally, however, fibroid tumors can cause problems. Complications from fibroid growth can include: * Pressure on the urinary system. * Pressure on the intestines. * Interference with the reproductive system * Or infection.
Because these tumors can grow to be very large, surgery is usually recommended in order to restore health and to protect the uterus.
