Are Tumors Outside The Uterus / Vagina Dangerous?
Good doc, I want to ask, I’m late for menstruation and I also have an ultrasound, but the result is that I am not pregnant, but it is said that there is a small tumor located outside my uterus and it is said to be harmless? Is it true that nothing will happen in my uterus?
Thank you for the question.
There are many types of tumors that can appear outside the uterus. These tumors, some can affect the menstrual cycle, some are not. Therefore, it needs to be clarified first, what exactly does the tumor mean? Where is the exact location? How big is the size? Is it docile or malignant?
Some types of tumors that can affect the menstrual cycle for example are ovarian cysts, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine polyps, myoma, and so on. Tumors in other organ systems, in addition to the reproductive system, some can cause disrupted menstrual cycles, for example thyroid gland tumors, pituitary gland tumors, adrenal gland tumors, and so on. The danger or not of this tumor certainly depends on its type, size, severity, as well as your general health condition.
Aside from benign or malignant tumors, late menstruation can also be caused by other factors, for example pregnancy, hormonal disorders, stress, fatigue, extreme diets, obesity, drug effects, birth control effects, and so on. The treatment for delayed menstruation can be different, depending on the underlying cause. So, the doctor or obstetrician who checks you is the one who knows this best. Therefore, you can consult directly with him yes ..
So that menstruation is smoother, in addition to undergoing treatment for tumors that you suffer according to doctor's advice, you should regularly exercise every day, maintain ideal body weight, be more diligent in eating fruits, also eat lots of vegetables and whole grains, don't stress And also do not carelessly take medicine or herbal medicine without advice from a doctor.
Hope this helps ...
