Uterine fibroids information and locations in Mexico

Uterine fibroids, also known as uterine myomas, are non-cancerous tumors that develop in the muscular tissue of the uterus. They are quite common in women of reproductive age and can vary in size and quantity.
Although the exact cause of myoma growth is not known for certain, it is believed to be related to hormonal imbalances, as myomas tend to grow during reproductive age and reduce in size after menopause. They may also be influenced by genetic and hereditary factors. The treatment for myomas depends on the size, location, and quantity of myomas a person has, as well as their age and reproductive plans. Some treatment options include observation, medication, radiofrequency or surgery.

Surgery to remove uterine fibroids is called myomectomy and is performed to remove fibroids and preserve the uterus, depending on the type and location of fibroids you may be eligible for hysteroscopic procedure, open surgery, laparoscopic or robotic surgery.
