Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

My mom had fibroid in her uterus and got it removed last week. Please see the reports attached and let me know what it is. Thank you in advance.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

The report says that the fibroid was not malignant or cancerous (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

It is a type of cellular growth due to long-term hormonal stimulation. Leiomyomas are benign monoclonal tumors arising from the smooth muscle cells of the myometrium.

Metaplasia is normal cells at abnormal location.

The treatment is correct that is the idea of operation and she should do fine.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
