Uterus is one of the most important organ in the female reproductive system. It is critical to have a healthy uterus free of any defect and unwanted growth. When there is unwanted tissue growth in the uterus it is called uterine fibroid. Uterine fibroid can be a major hindrance in the pregnancy if the size is big. Most of the females will have uterine fibroids during their lifetime but they do not give any symptoms hence don't need any treatment. However if the size is big then they not only create problem in pregnancy but also hinder the normal life of a woman. The common symptoms are heavy, irregular and painful periods, lower abdomen pain, pain during sexual intercourse, pressure in lower abdomen etc. Most of the fibroids that are seen by Dr Radha Agartaniya at Matritva Clinic in Greater Noida are benign or non cancerous but some turn cancerous and need extended treatment.
Uterine fibroids can easily be diagnosed on an ultrasound of pelvis. In some cases when Dr Agartaniya plans to operate upon them then to have more detailed information about the size, location etc she may order MRI of abdomen. Treatment of the fibroids depend upon the size, symptoms presented and the age of patient. In case fibroids are small then best treatment would be to wait and watch for which reguar ultrasounds need to be done to check on the increase or decrease in their size. In case the size is big then surgery is the best option which can be performed both through open and laparoscopic method. The removed fibroid is sent for biopsy to rule out cancer. In case it comes out to be cancerous then a hysterectomy is performed. Hysterctomy can also be performed in older patients who have completed their family.
Dr Radha is one of the best and most experienced gynaecologist for the treatment of fibroids. She has more than 22 years experience in treating patients with fibroid through medicine and surgery. The line of treatment decided by Dr Radha is always in the best interest of the patient. Most of the patients who are young and have not yet completed their family are advised uterus preserving myomectomy i.e only fibroid is removed. The cost of the surgery is between INR 45000 to 60000. In case of females who have completed their family or have achieved menopause are advised hysterectomy i.e. removal of uterus. Cost of the same would be INR 75000 to 90000. Dr Radha is extremely well trained in operating through open as well as laparoscopic method with equal ease and precision.
