Definition of Mioma

Definition of Mioma

Myoma is a lump that grows on the inner or outer wall of the uterus. This condition can cause severe symptoms and cause pregnancy complications.

Mioma or uterine fibroids are a type of benign tumor that commonly occurs in women aged 30–50 years. Mioma sufferers can have one or several lumps of different sizes. This condition can be treated with hormone therapy or surgery.

Mioma Symptoms and Causes

Myoma generally does not cause symptoms. If symptoms appear, sufferers can experience heavy menstrual bleeding or menstruation that lasts more than 7 days, pelvic pain, and frequent urination. In some cases, myoma can also cause vaginal bleeding after intercourse .

The cause of myoma is not known with certainty. However, this condition is thought to be related to an increase in the hormones estrogen and progesterone, as well as a family history of myoma.

Mioma Treatment and Prevention

Miomas that are small and don't cause symptoms often don't require medical treatment. However, sufferers still need to see a doctor regularly. Meanwhile, for symptomatic fibroids, doctors can perform hormone therapy or surgical removal of myoma .

Mioma is a disease that cannot be prevented. However, there are several efforts that can be made to reduce the risk of developing myoma, namely maintaining an ideal body weight and increasing your intake of vegetables and fruits.
