Treatment options of myomas of different sizes
Due to the size benign tumors in the uterus are divided into:
- Small myomas look like the fetus on 4-5 weeks of pregnancy (up to 2 cm);
Such uterine fibroids do not have symptoms and do not require treatment. A woman should visit a gynecologist and undergo ultrasound diagnostics 6 times a year.
- Medium myomas look like the fetus on 5-11 weeks of pregnancy (up to 6 cm);
At this stage of the disease development, a doctor may prescribe the hormonal drugs. Uterine artery embolization and FUS ablation are also performed. If the tumor grows, a minimally invasive myomectomy is prescribed.
- Large myomas can reach a size of 12 weeks fetus.
A large tumor has such signs as heavy bleeding and severe pain. A woman's stomach is enlarged, and the bladder is disrupted.
The only way to treat such a myoma is surgery. Depending on the degree of the uterus damage, organ-preserving myomectomy or complete removal of the uterus is used.
