Also called as Fibromyomas, Leiomyomas or just Myomas, Fibroids are usually benign growths that occur in and around the uterus. The fibroids can be as small as a pea or as big as a golf ball. And while most cases of fibroids don’t cause much harm to the body, some fibroids can grow to large sizes and cause a series of uncomfortable symptoms like frequent urination, backache, leg pain, pelvic pain, excessive menstrual bleeding, spotting in between periods and constipation etc.
Certain fibroids can also become cancerous with time and cause more serious problems to the concerned individual (for instance, a cancerous fibroid may warrant a hysterectomy which would affect fertility).
Although the exact cause for the occurrence of fibroids is not clear, certain risk factors like hormonal imbalances, obesity and genetic traits etc. may increase an individual’s chances of getting them. And while fibroids can be effectively treated with standard medications, there are several home remedies that can help get rid of the growths and offer relief from their symptoms without causing much harm to the body in the process.
