Swollen Uterus Due To Abdominal Massage Is It Dangerous?
Is it very fatal if the uterus swells due to the effects of abdominal massage?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, where did you get the term "swollen uterus"? Is it from the doctor? What kind of examinations have you had that led to the diagnosis of a swollen uterus?
In medical science, the term "swollen uterus" is not really a commonly used term. Possibly, swollen uterus refers to the following conditions:
Endometrial hyperplasia (thickening of the endometrial wall in the uterus)
Myoma (benign tumor originating from the uterine muscle)
Uterine cancer (malignant tumor)
PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)
Thickening of the uterine wall due to other causes, for example before menstruation, while undergoing hormonal therapy, when experiencing abnormalities in the thyroid gland or pituitary gland, and so on
Each of the above conditions can be dangerous or not. Determination of this hazard or not depends on the type of condition, severity, and the treatment taken to overcome it. If you mean a swollen uterus due to hormonal changes before menstruation, of course this is not dangerous. But, it is different if what is meant is a tumor or malignancy. However, in general, there is no direct relationship between the above conditions and massage in the abdominal area.
However, even though it is not directly related, it does not mean that you can do massage on the stomach carelessly. Unlike the internal organs in other areas of the body which are often protected by bone on the outside, the internal organs in the abdominal area are only limited by a relatively thin layer of skin, muscle and fat. In fact, in this abdominal area there are very many vital organs, ranging from digestive organs, urinary organs, reproductive organs, and large blood vessels. Therefore, it is not recommended to do excessive massage in this area because it has the potential to cause injury to the internal organs.
That's the explanation we can give. For more details, please consult directly with the doctor at the nearest health facility.
I hope this helps.
