Product description

This guide discusses the "other side" of treating fibroid tumours - the side that offers preventative strategies and all your treatment options. Fibroids are the leading reason why more than half a million women a year have a hysterectomy. Sadly many women are not given any other options by their doctors even though there are safer and easier alternatives. Fibroids are benign tumours that arise from the smooth muscle layer of the uterus. As they grow they can extend their range, putting pressure on other organs and tissues. Over 50 per cent of women diagnosed with them develop symptoms bad enough to impact on their daily lives. This book takes readers through the diagnosis and treatment of uterine fibrosis. It details what every woman needs to know, including all the up-to-date medical treatment options as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each.
