Fibroid tumors include uterine diseases that often haunt many women; other than cervical cancer. According to data, almost 80% of women of reproductive age worldwide experience myoma. Unfortunately, many women are not aware that they have myoma. Because some people consider the symptoms of myoma like ordinary pain.
For your information, the symptoms of myoma in each person can vary. The reason is, myoma has varying sizes, ranging from the size of a seed pod to the size of a melon. In addition, the location of myoma also varies, some are inside the uterus and outside the uterus.
To avoid the adverse effects of myoma, Mama must treat it as soon as possible, one of which is by recognizing the symptoms of fibroid tumors early:
Symptoms Of Fibroid Tumors Are Marked By Frequent Bloating
The most common symptom of myoma is a bloated stomach. Myoma can put pressure on the intestines because of the size of the myoma which makes the stomach tight. Moreover, myoma which is located behind the uterine wall, often presses on the large intestine, so that the stomach is even more bloated.
Apart from making the stomach feel tight and bloated, a larger myoma makes the stomach more distended. In fact, in some cases, myoma sufferers look like they are pregnant. Therefore, Moms must immediately do an ultrasound to confirm this disease.
Menstrual Pain And Bleeding
During menstruation, women usually feel the pain that is not wearing. However, if you often feel very severe pain, you need to be vigilant. Because it could be a symptom of myoma. These benign tumors can cause adenomyosis or the tissue that lines the uterus into the middle layer of the uterine wall.
Myoma symptoms are also characterized by heavy bleeding during menstruation. This condition occurs because fibroids encourage the growth of blood vessels. As a result, the uterus cannot contract properly and bleeding continues. FYI, sufferers of myoma can experience menstruation for more than 10 days. In fact, the normal menstrual cycle is only 3-7 days.
The next symptom of myoma is characterized by pain in several parts of the body. Starting from lower back pain, legs, to the pelvis. This condition occurs because the myoma presses on the veins, nerves, and the area around the pelvis which stimulates pain in other parts of the body.
To relieve this one symptom, you can compress the painful part with warm water. If the pain gets worse, you can ask your doctor for help to be given pain relievers.
The next symptom of myoma is characterized by disturbances in the urinary system. This condition occurs because the position of the bladder is right in front of the uterus, causing a feeling of pressure, not feeling pee, and wanting to pee all the time.
So, if you often experience increased intensity of bowel movements, this condition can indicate an increasing size of the myoma. The habit of constantly peeing is often associated with symptoms of urinary tract infections.
In fact, a benign tumor in the uterus will not cause a UTI. Therefore, if it’s difficult for you to distinguish a myoma from a UTI, there’s nothing wrong with doing an ultrasound examination so you can do the right treatment.
Those are some of the symptoms of myoma in women of childbearing age that should not be underestimated. If you experience any of these symptoms, immediately consult a doctor, OK?
