Dr Alphy is a known Best Fibroid surgeon Dubai and UAE.
There isn’t one single way of treating fibroids. The options can vary from simple ones like supportive treatment to radical treatment such as hysterectomy. There are many important factors to consider such as age, size and location of fibroids, fertility aspirations and more importantly your symptoms and your wishes.
There is no hard and fast rule about size. Surgery is deferred unless an individual fibroid is larger than 4-6cm in size or the uterus is larger than the size of one of 12 weeks of pregnancy. Even smaller fibroids can cause severe symptoms particularly if they are submucous and may need removal.
Once symptomatic, most fibroids need to be surgically removed. Removal of fibroid is recommended in women with symptoms of abnormal uterine bleeding, pain during menstruation, pressure symptoms or Infertility.
Surgery is not the only way to treat fibroids. Some of the options are described below:
Hysterectomy in a fibroid condition is recommended only when one wants a permanent solution to your fibroid problem. Typically, the person does not wish to bear children in the future or is near or past menopause. The fibroids are large and cause heavy bleeding and other alternatives for fibroids have failed.
One of the most important factors in helping you choose appropriate medical care is your full understanding of the reasons for treatment, the risks, and the potential benefits for you. If hysterectomy has been suggested to you as an option, you should carefully weigh the potential benefits and risks so that you are able to make a comfortable and informed decision about whether hysterectomy is right for you.
One treatment may not suit all women with fibroids. Consultation with an experienced Gynecologist will allow you to assess various factors and come to a decision regarding the optimal option for you. Call us today to Book your appointment with Best Fibroid Surgeon Dubai today.
