Uterine fibroids are benign muscular growths that typically grow in or around the wall of the uterus and can vary in size, number, and location.

The development of uterine fibroids is linked to the hormones estrogen and progesterone, increasing and shrinking in size depending on hormone levels.

Most uterine fibroids don't cause symptoms, but heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pain are common in women who have fibroid tumors (leiomyomas).

Uterine fibroids are generally found during a pelvic exam and confirmed with an ultrasound. Treatments usually include medication or surgery.

Uterine fibroid embolization is a procedure that injects embolic agents into the uterine arteries to cut off the blood supply that feeds fibroids.

Uterine fibroid FAQs can be found under our treatment services and discussed further with our team during a private consultation or telehealth call.
