Fibroids Can be Treated Without Damage to Organs

DUBAI – Incidence of fibroids – non-cancerous tumours – has increased among women in the UAE owing to genetic predilection and lifestyle changes, but can be treated without damage to organs, say experts.

Around 20 per cent of women have fibroids, a non-malignant tumour in a woman’s uterus, and though they cannot be directly associated to a single cause, it is linked to the genes, said Dr Neeta Warty, visiting Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Laparoscopic Surgeon at the Zulekha Hospital in Dubai.

“Recent studies have shown that a blood relation with someone who has suffered from fibroids increases a woman’s chances of acquiring it. We also know that hormones called estrogen feed the fibroids and once a lady reaches her child bearing age she could be at a risk,” said the specialist.
