Good afternoon, I am a 43 year old woman, while the lower left abdomen has a rather hard lump, do I have a myoma? Thanks HealthReplies.com … my menstrual cycle can be considered normal, but the first day always only spots / black spots and if it starts out the blood feels a maximum pain of 2hr, sometimes a day smlm
Good evening Tuti, thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com.
Lumps in the lower left abdomen can be caused by several possible conditions such as:
Hernia (down winding)
Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the womb)
Tumors of the large intestine
and several other possibilities
Because the cause of a lump that is found in the stomach is not just myoma disease as you ask, but it can be caused by many other possibilities, therefore it is highly recommended that you consult your complaint further to the doctor. The doctor will carry out further assessment of your complaint and also your physical to determine the possible cause of the lump. The doctor may also ask you to do some further tests such as abdominal ultrasound and others according to the doctor's consideration to help determine the cause of the lump. After knowing the cause, the new doctor will decide what therapy you should go through, and maybe you will be referred to certain specialists to get further therapy in dealing with the cause of the complaint.
Regarding your next question about the symptoms of myoma, in general, if someone suffers from this disease, will cause complaints such as:
Menstrual blood that comes out more than normal
Menstruation lasts more than 7 days
Can be accompanied by pain in the abdomen or pelvis
The urge to urinate becomes more frequent
Pain in the back / waist that can spread to the feet
You can also read more about this disease in the following article: myoma
For now, if no other complaints arise that accompany the lump, then you can carry out your activities as usual, but avoid temporarily heavy enough activities such as lifting heavy objects. Also pay attention to the lump, whether the longer is getting bigger and how long it takes the lump to get bigger, also pay attention to what activities or things might make the lump bigger or maybe make the lump disappear. Avoid stressing or even piercing the lump, because it might make matters worse. If the lump is accompanied by severe pain and appears suddenly and is also accompanied by nausea, vomiting, immediately contact a doctor or immediately to the hospital emergency room to get help.
I hope this helps.
