About myomas

Muscle knots, which are also called myomas or fibroids, are benign lesions in the uterus.

What does it come from?

The cause is not known, but it is very common. The incidence increases with age until menopause and they often grow gradually. After this, they usually become smaller.

 

Do myomas need to be treated?

No, myomas are only treated if they cause distressing symptoms.

What problems can myomas cause?

The most common complaint is increased menstrual bleeding. If the myoma becomes large, you may also notice a filling in the stomach. Myomas can also make it more difficult to get pregnant. Many have no symptoms.

What can I do even if I have myomas?

Obesity and vitamin D deficiency increase the risk of myomas, so if you are overweight, it is beneficial to lose weight. Make sure you don't have a vitamin D deficiency.
