Dr.Manoj's Homeopathy Treatments For Fibroid Uterus
Uterine fibroids are the lumps/growths/tumours that develop from the smooth muscle layer of the uterus. They often appear during childbearing years(30s and 40s).
These growths are non-cancerous. There are three types of growths depending upon the region in which they are formed—under the surface of uterine lining(submucosal fibroid), just under the outside of the uterus(subserosal fibroid), within the muscle wall of uterus(intramural fibroid).
Cause of the uterine fibroid is unknown. It runs in the family.Their growth has been linked to the hormone oestrogen. As long as a woman is menstruating, a fibroid will probably continue to grow,usually slowly.After menopause, as the levels of oestrogen are less, they usually shrink or stop growing.
Fibroids may be single or multiple. Usually fibroids doesn’t cause symptoms. Some may cause severe to mild symptoms.
