Types of Uterine Fibroids: Things you need to know about them
Read this blog to understand the types of uterine fibroids. This will help you know the treatment and surgical options you can choose.
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a minimally invasive procedure to shrink noncancerous tumors in the uterus called uterine fibroids. A Fluoroscopy (Imaging technique) is done to trace and examine uterine fibroids. This procedure shrinks fibroids by blocking their blood supply. A doctor injects tiny microscopic particles into the arteries that block the supply of blood to the fibroids. Once the blood supply is restricted, the fibroids in the uterus begin to shrink.
Uterine fibroids are noncancerous growths in the uterus that appear during the woman’s childbearing years.
Some of its causes include:
It's important to note that many women with uterine fibroids have no symptoms and may not require treatment. However, if symptoms are present, treatment options may include medication, surgery, or other procedures to shrink or remove the fibroids.
Women who don't prefer removing the uterus by hysterectomy procedure OR rather want a painless, scarless & non-open surgery can opt for a uterine fibroid embolization procedure from Medfin!
The UFE procedure typically takes 1-2 hours to complete, and most patients are able to go home the same day or the following day. Recovery time varies, but most patients can return to their normal activities within 1-2 weeks. It is essential to follow your doctor's instructions carefully and thoroughly to ensure a successful procedure and quick recovery.
More than 90% of people who’s had a uterine fibroid embolization in the past, experience a partial or full recovery. Some of its benefits & risks include.

Once the source of the blood supply is cut off to a fibroid, it cannot grow back. However, this doesn’t mean new fibroids cannot form, but the ones that have been treated would definitely never return.
Uterine fibroids can increase in size and number, taking over the uterus and worsening symptoms, and causing infertility in some women.
Though not the fibroids, the vaginal discharge while diagnosed with uterine fibroids can produce a foul smell.
Got to know about them from my friend. They got an appointment for only 299. Once the doctor confirmed that I needed the surgery they got me a fixed cost which included ALL the costs. No extra amounts were charged. Thank you Medfin
After my consultation with the doctor, MEDFIN representative got me a fixed package cost that included my mothers initial tests, surgery cost. They also gave me stockings free for Rs. 3000 post the surgery. They kept up their promise they made
Thank you Medfin. They ensured the whole process from selecting a very experienced doctor to offering the latest procedure at a very reasonable price. They also arranged a follow up post my surgery with the doctor to ensure my recovery was on track. Thank you for being there throughout
