Remember that each organism is unique, and the treatments for uterine fibroids can be carried out individually. When selecting an appropriate diagnostic and treatment program, USA Fibroids Center – UFE is used as an individual approach to determining the cause of fibroids accurately.
Among the main risk factors that develop uterine fibroids, the specialists of the clinic distinguish:

High frequency of artificial abortions, especially during the first pregnancy;
Chronic inflammatory diseases of the genital organs;
Violations at any of the three levels of the hormonal system: ovaries - pituitary gland - hypothalamus, and increased production of estrogens.
Hereditary predisposition plays a vital role in the appearance and development of uterine fibroids
Therefore, at our center, the patient will undoubtedly be asked about the likely cases of diseases in her closest relatives.
Treatments for uterine fibroids: program
Hysteroscopy is considered one of the most effective and modern methods for diagnosing uterine fibroids. This is a surgical method, the main advantage of which is the ability to simultaneously identify nodes and all pathological processes in the uterus and take tissue for histological examination.
If any of the above uterine fibroids symptoms are suspected, an ultrasound examination is also performed, and if necessary, a hormonal examination and an aspiration biopsy of the endometrium. This allows you to diagnose and select the appropriate treatment regimen accurately.
Treatments for uterine fibroids depend on the patient's age, the tumor's growth rate, the severity of symptoms, the localization of myomatous nodes, and the presence of complications. Conservative therapy is indicated for small fibroids and moderate uterine bleeding. Surgical treatment is indicated for the rapid growth of the tumor, heavy uterine bleeding, progression of anemia, compression of adjacent organs, tumor necrosis, or torsion of the legs of the myomatous node.
There is a selection of individual hormonal therapy. If anemia needs to be corrected, iron supplements are prescribed.
To evaluate the results of treatment, regular control examinations are carried out. If necessary, the doctor adjusts the prescription of drugs and their doses individually.
Diagnostics include consultation with a specialist, general examination of the mammary glands, ultrasound, and pH test. All this you will go through at the initial appointment - diagnostic procedures are included in the consultation's price, which will save you significantly. Additional studies are ordered if necessary.
