Hysterectomy or UFE?
This is a personal decision. Both procedures are effective options at treating uterine fibroids, but they have different benefits and limitations. A hysterectomy is an invasive procedure that removes the uterus while fibroid embolization is a minimally invasive option that leaves the uterus intact. Several advantages of UFE is that it has fewer complications and faster recovery times than a hysterectomy. But, the best way to determine whether a hysterectomy or UFE is right for you is to meet with a healthcare professional.
can fibroids turn into cancer?
Uterine fibroids are almost always noncancerous (benign) and rarely turn into cancer. Having fibroids also does not increase one's risk of developing cancerous tumors or cancer in the uterus. Undergoing a thorough pelvic exam and other diagnostic testing are ideal ways to monitoring uterine fibroids and your overall health.
What questions should I ask my doctor if I have fibroids?
These are great questions to ask your doctor:
- How many fibroids do I have?
- What kind of fibroids are they?
- How big are my fibroids?
- Will my fibroids grow?
- What can I expect in the long-term with fibroids?
- How can I monitor my fibroids and pelvic health?
- Do I need treatment?
- What are my treatment options?
Will insurance cover my procedure?
Not all fibroids require treatment, but if medical intervention is deemed necessary, most insurance plans offer some form of coverage. Our office will contact your provider to review your benefits and confirm if any coverage is available. We'll do all we can to maximize your insurance plan.
