Fibroids are muscular tumours that grow in the walls of the uterus. They are almost always benign, but can be dangerous due to their size. While some can be as small as a seed, some can grow to grapefruit-like sizes which can be dangerous. Fibroids are most common in women aged between 40 and 50.
They can cause pain and heavy menstrual bleeding, which women find hard to live with. They can put pressure on the bladder, causing frequent urination. They can also cause rectal pressure.
To treat Fibroids you can take medication or surgery. Each of these carries their own risks. Here at Beechcroft we have some treatments tailored to Fibroids sufferers. Please contact us if you need more information.
