Fibroma Removal

Fibroma is a non-cancerous tumour-like growth composed of fibrous or connective tissues. These tumour-like fibroids tend to develop when the independent cell or tissue grows due to injury or local irritation.

Although the outcome of the fibroid can be alarming, fibromas are most often considered a nuisance rather than a threat to one’s health. These fibroids can form anywhere in the body and generally do not require treatment or removal. They can occur in people of any age and gender, but they are most often seen in adults.

Types of Fibroids

Angiofibroma

These fibroids are small pimples across the nose and cheeks that contain fibrous tissue. Commonly, angiofibroma manifests from skin-coloured to erythematous dome-shaped papules on the face. However, when it presents as multiple facial lesions, it can be associated with tuberous sclerosis or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1.

Dermatofibroma

This type of fibroma is a benign round skin lesion that commonly grows on the legs. They appear in the flesh’s colour range to red-purple and are like hard lumps under the skin. Dermatofibromas are rarely malignant and harmless; hence, they are best left alone.

Oral Fibromas

These fibromas often appear inside the cheeks, on the sides of the tongue, or the lips and are usually less than one centimetre in diameter. They mostly appear pink or white and are typically smooth and raised. Oral fibroma is a mouth sore consisting of localized connective tissue that becomes irritated and inflamed.

Plantar Fibroids

This fibroma typically occurs in the foot’s arch, especially in children. A plantar fibroma is a nodule or fibrous knot found in the band of tissue that supports muscle and extends along the bottom of the foot from the heel to the toes. These fibroids are typically benign or non-malignant.

Uterine Fibroids

These fibroids are non-cancerous growths of the uterus that often appear during childbearing years. Also called leiomyomas or myomas, uterine fibroids are not associated with increased risks of uterine cancer and seldom develop into cancers or tumours.

Pedunculated Fibroids

These fibroids are benign growths inside (submucosal) and outside (subserosal) the uterus wall. A stalk-like growth called a peduncle attached these fibroids to the uterine wall. The main difference between pedunculated fibroids and other fibroids is the peduncle.

All you need to know about Fibroma Removal

The major cause of why fibroids grow is trauma or irritation to the sensitive tissues of the affected part of the body. This can be the result of an injury or a habit like biting the inside of your cheek. However, depending on the affected area, several factors may trigger fibroids to grow and develop.

Here are some factors that may trigger fibromas:

According to some studies, genetics, heritage and ethnicity may play an important role in acquiring fibromas. Research indicates that plantar fibromas are more common among people of Northern European heritage and rarely affect people of Asian descent.

Hormonal changes are usually a factor that triggers developments in the body. Estrogen and progesterone are two hormones that stimulate the development of the uterine lining during each menstrual cycle in preparation for pregnancy. However, it may seem to appear that these hormones promote the development of fibroids.

Extracellular matrix or ECM makes your cells stick altogether. According to studies, fibroids have more ECM than normal cells. This makes them fibrous, hence, triggering factors in them and causing cells to change.

Studies show that people who are obese or overweight are prone to fibroid development.

An individual who got injured or acquired trauma from an accident is more likely to incur fibroids. Repetitive foot injuries can lead to tearing of the fascia in the arch, which encourages the growth of fibromas.

When your mom or sister have uterine fibroids, it is more likely that you may acquire them.

Here are a few things that can raise your chances of developing uterine fibroids:

  • Age group 30 years or older;
  • Having your menstruation at a young age;
  • Use of birth control pills;
  • Pregnancy;
  • Vitamin D deficiency;
  • Eating too much red meat and not enough green vegetables, fruit, or dairy; and
  • Excessive alcohol drinking.

Here are the symptoms that occur before the actual mouth sore appears:

  • Unusual lumps in the mouth;
  • Rough surfaces inside the cheeks or on the gums; and
  • Pale or dark patches of cheek and gum tissue.

If you notice these symptoms, it is more likely that you may be developing an oral fibroid. If you tend to cheek-bite, it is best to break the habit. If these symptoms are the result of ill-fitting dental appliances, you may ask your dentist to make some adjustments to your dental appliance.

The primary symptom for plantar fibroma is a slow-growing lump in the arch of the foot. It is usually less than 1 inch in size. The lump may initially cause little to no pain or discomfort. However, the fibroma can get bigger over time and the larger the lumps the more often are risks of pain and discomfort.

The pain may get worse in the following instances:

  • When pressure is applied to the lump;
  • If you keep wearing restrictive shoes;
  • When you always walk barefooted; and
  • If you tend to stand for long periods.

Many women who have uterine fibroids usually do not show any symptoms. However, for individuals who do, the symptoms can be influenced by the location, size and number of fibroids.

Here are the most common signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids:

  • Women may experience heavy menstrual bleeding;
  • Menstrual periods lasting more than a week;
  • Patients can feel pelvic pressure or pain;
  • Frequent urination;
  • Instances of difficulty in emptying the bladder;
  • Constipation; and
  • Some backaches or leg pains.

Fibroids are generally classified by their location. Intramural fibroids grow in the muscles within the uterus wall. Submucosal fibroids bulge into the uterine cavity. Subserosal fibroids project to the outside of the uterus.

Laser Waterlase is a completely safe, very gentle alternative to many of the traditionally used dental tools that are available. The tool works by using a laser and a spray of water, rather than the traditional use of a scalpel.

Although fibroids are generally non-malignant and harmless, patients may choose to remove them for health, medical, or cosmetic reasons. However, in some cases, surgery may be necessary, especially if the fibroids continue to grow in size or cause increasing pain and discomfort.

In most cases, a surgeon may recommend surgery only after other procedures have failed. There is also a risk of fibroma recurrence following surgery, especially in cases of multiple nodules.

Uterine artery embolization or UAE is a minimally invasive procedure to treat non-cancerous tumours or fibroids that developed in the uterus. During the procedure, the blood supply to the fibroids is cut off which generally causes the fibroids to shrink.

This procedure is also referred to as fibroidectomy. This treatment is designed to surgically remove uterine leiomyomas or fibroids. Uterine fibroids typically develop during childbearing years, but they can occur at any age.

Myomectomy aims to remove the symptom-causing fibroids while reconstructing the uterus. Studies show that women who undergo myomectomy gained improved uterine wall and endometrial cavity. It also helps decrease heavy menstrual bleeding and pelvic pressure.

This treatment is a surgical procedure that removes your uterus through an incision in your lower abdomen. This is rarely a treatment option for fibroid removal. However, if the uterine fibroids have developed largely and have caused pain and infection in the uterus, hysterectomy can be a good option.

If you notice that the symptoms of fibroma are getting strong and more noticeable, it is best to contact your doctor for immediate evaluation and diagnosis. During the consultation, your doctor will subject you to an examination. By feeling your uterus during a routine pelvic examination, your doctor may suspect fibroma. However, in most cases, further tests will be conducted.

Here are some procedures that are performed to diagnose the presence of fibroma:

Ultrasound is used to take a picture of your uterus. A technician will place a device either in your vagina or on your abdomen to get the images necessary for analysis.

This mainly consists of blood tests to help figure out why fibroma developed in your uterus. Your complete blood count or CBC can help diagnose if you have anemia or other bleeding disorders.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging or MRI is a follow-up procedure if your doctor needs more information after you have an ultrasound. MRI can show more detailed images of fibroids which can help doctors decide the best treatment that will work well with your needs
This procedure involves the use of saline that will incite into your uterine cavity to make it larger. This helps doctors see uterine fibroids that are growing as well as the lining of your uterus. This is useful if you are trying to get pregnant or for women with heavy periods.
Your doctor inserts a small telescope with an attached light into your cervix. The aim is to expand your uterine cavity by injecting saline. This can help them see through the walls of your uterus and the fallopian tube opening.

A laparoscopic procedure is performed in the abdomen or pelvis using small incisions with the aid of a camera. This surgical diagnostic procedure is used to examine the organs inside the abdominal walls including the uterus. The laparoscopic device aids diagnosis or therapeutic interventions to check the development of fibroma in the uterus.

In most cases, your trusted doctor or surgeon will consider your personal, medical and health records to know which type of diagnosis should be performed.

Your doctor may also consider some factors such as the following:

  • The location of fibroma;
  • If you are taking any medication;
  • pregnancy for women;
  • If you are taking some fertility pills or therapy;
  • If you previously underwent myomectomy;
  • Your age and ethnicity;

After a thorough and careful analysis of your diagnostic test, your doctor will recommend the best treatment to remove your fibroma. Whether it is a surgical or non-surgical procedure will depend on the size, severity and extent of your fibroma.

Your doctor may also consider, any infection or complications that may have arisen from the development of your fibroids. If your bladder or uterine muscle are affected, treatment options are carefully considered.

Remember to contact your trusted surgeon or doctor in case a number of signs and symptoms of fibroma pursues. Women should be wary about how they feel, especially in their uterus area. Whether you are pregnant or taking fertility options, it is best to be on guard to ensure healthy living.
