Uterine Fibroid Embolization (UFE)

Uterine Fibroids and Their Symptoms

Uterine fibroids are benign, non-cancerous growths in or on the walls of the uterus, or womb, ranging in size from less than an inch to more than six inches in diameter. African-American women and those with a family history are more likely to develop fibroids. Most fibroids are asymptomatic, and are only discovered when a woman has a routine pelvic examination.

Know the Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore

  • Heavy, prolonged menstrual periods, sometimes with clots
  • Anemia (fatigue due to low red blood count)
  • Pain or pressure between the hip bones or in the back of the legs
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Urinary frequency
  • Constipation or bloating
  • An enlarged belly
