Waiting to see if your symptoms of pain, bloating, and more go away when you have an inflamed fibroid within your uterus may not be in your best interest. These benign masses within or on your uterus can not only be painful, but they can also be very disruptive to reproductive organs. At Essential Women's Health Associates in Las Vegas and Henderson, NV, we have a team of seasoned gynecological specialists to diagnose your presenting symptoms. We perform ultrasounds and use other diagnostic technologies to find fibroids, and we offer several minimally invasive treatments to eliminate them. Fibroids can grow on the inside, middle (submucosal), and outside (subserosal) of the uterus.
If you would like to learn more about fibroids, please schedule an appointment. You can meet with one of our seasoned OBGYNs at Essential Women's Health Associates in our Las Vegas or Henderson, NV office.

"Awesome doctor. My other doctors recommended a hysterectomy for back trouble I was having, she examined me and discovered this was NOT the problem. She kept me from an unnecessary and painful surgery. Great doctor. When we discovered a REAL female problem I was having she did my surgery with care and confidence (even providing pictures). I recovered quickly and I would highly recommend her. Best doctor ever. Very caring and funny too. Her bedside manner puts you at ease and she inspires your confidence and trust in her."- G.O. / Google / Jun 06, 2019
When you have a fibroid, there is a good chance you may not even be aware of it or think it is something else. Symptoms of a uterine fibroid can look like many gynecological issues as it causes cramps, low back pain, and heavy flow during menstruation. When you are not on your period, you may feel bloated, a dull ache in your lower abdomen/back, have the need to urinate more frequently, and feelings of discomfort during sexual intercourse.
We have cutting-edge technologies to diagnose and excise your uterine fibroids in an outpatient setting at a local surgical center or hospital where our OBGYNs have medical privileges. Once you have been diagnosed with one or multiple fibroids, then we can begin the talks about the removal process with surgery. The size, location, and level of severity are some of the determining factors on which treatment technique your OBGYN may select for you, such as open surgery, a hysteroscopic myomectomy, a robotic-assisted myomectomy, or a robotic-assisted hysterectomy. Your treatment plan will be decided upon with your input.
If you choose not to see a doctor about your symptoms or refuse to have your uterine fibroids removed, you are taking the chances of this negatively impacting your overall health and fertility. A fibroid may become a barrier to getting pregnant and maintaining a healthy pregnancy. It is best for your body now and in the future to go through the diagnostic and removal process.
