What Is The Impact If The Myoma Is Not Operated?
I have done transvaginal ultrasound and my uterus is good, right and left cells are good, but there is a myoma measuring 2.5 cm, the word is not dangerous, but I was told to do a HCG test, because it was not brave and the cost was rather expensive. Does this myoma have to d surgery thank you
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Myoma uteri is a benign tumor found in the uterine wall, can grow inward so that it fills the uterine cavity and can also grow outward so that it presses on other abdominal organs. Myoma uteri is formed due to the influence of the increased hormone estrogen that occurs during menstruation and pregnancy. A woman who has had labor has a lower risk of developing this tumor.
Generally, uterine myomas are asymptomatic because of their small size. The symptoms that appear depend on the size of the tumor, the number of tumors and their location. These symptoms such as heavy bleeding during menstruation, pain during menstruation and frequent urination.
Tumors with a small size do not require special medical treatment because it will be absorbed by the body itself. But it needs regular monitoring. The tumor with a larger size and cause symptoms will be treated with hormonal drugs first. Later if necessary, medical measures in the form of surgical removal of the tumor can be considered by patients and doctors.
Thus hopefully useful.
