Can Uterine Fibroids Cause Lower Back Pain

Uterine fibroids can cause low back pain. There are a lot of nerves passing through the lower lumbar spine in the area of the mid-pelvis. When the uterus becomes big enough, secondary to the large fibroids that might be within it, those fibroids and the entire uterus can compress these nerves. This will mimic back pain, but it is really pain caused by the uterus compressing these nerves. By performing an embolization procedure, we can decrease the size of the uterus and the fibroids, so there is less compression on these nerves, which in turn, alleviates some of the back pain that is being experienced.
