Uterine Fibroids Treatment in Israel

A fibroid (also called "myoma") is a benign uterine tumour. It is one of the most common conditions, affecting 1 in 5 women over 30. In most cases multiple fibroids are diagnosed. However, while fibroids’ symptoms can be unpleasant, it is important to remember that they are not malignant, and that there are effective treatment options.

Treatment

According to a common misconception, uterine myomas can be treated conservatively. That is possible only in specific cases, when the myoma isn’t yet very large, develops slowly and is placed in the uterus in a particular manner. In all other cases the treatment that offers the best outcome, and can provide a full recovery is a myomectomy surgery. The treatment method will be selected by your physician according to diagnostics and exam results.
