Uterine fibroids are abnormal growths that develop in your uterus. Uterine fibroids can grow inside the uterine wall or uterine cavity.
Uterine fibroids are often asymptomatic. If you do experience symptoms, they might include:
If fibroids are causing heavy bleeding during your menstrual cycle, you may want to seek treatment, as excessive menstrual bleeding can contribute to anemia.
Treatment and management plans are developed based on size, location, and symptoms related to fibroids. To explore these and other treatment options, book an appointment with Dr. Martinez, either using the easy online scheduling tool or by phone.
