Fibroid Must Knows
What is a Uterine Fibroid Tumor?
Fibroid tumors are non-cancerous growths that appear on the muscular wall of the uterus.
They are the most common tumors of the female genital tract and range in size from microscopic to
masses that fill the entire abdominal cavity. In some cases, fibroids can be as large as a
5-month pregnancy. Uterine fibroids can affect women of all ages, but are most common in
women ages 40 to 50. In most cases, there is more than one fibroid in the uterus. Fibroids
consist of dense, fibrous tissue and are nourished and sustained by a series of blood vessels.
What are Common Symptoms?
While not cancerous, uterine fibroids can cause problems. Depending on size, location and number
of fibroids, common symptoms may include:
- Pelvic pain and pressure
- Excessive bleeding, including prolonged periods
- Abdominal swelling
- Frequent urination, constipation or bloating
What Are My Treatment Options?
There are many treatments available if you have symptomatic fibroids. If your doctor recommends
a hysterectomy, you should seek a second opinion and be aware of all your options. Most women
with symptomatic fibroids are candidates for Uterine Fibroid Embolization, but should consult
with their doctor to determine if it is the right choice for them.
The Embolization Solution
Embolization is a safe, simple hysterectomy alternative that shrinks uterine fibroids. It is
recognized by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and can help
you get your life back quickly... without the risks or prolonged recovery time of traditional

About The Fibroid Treatment Collective
Curing Fibroids From the Inside Out
The Fibroid Treatment Collective (FTC) is a medical group of fibroid experts dedicated to curing fibroids with minimally invasive therapy. We performed the very first Uterine Fibroid Embolization in America, and every year we add to the number of
patients who get fibroid relief without major surgery. Below is a general outline for our treatment protocol:
Continuity of Care
At the FTC, your entire treatment is handled, start to finish, by the same physician and medical team. We have found this unique "one team, one patient" approach offers more consistent, more comprehensive care for fibroid patients.
Before Fibroid Embolization, all patients are thoroughly evaluated to ensure the procedure is right for them. This includes a review of their medical history, general physical condition and any other information pertinent to the case.
The patient undergoes complete pelvic imaging, either ultrasound or MRI, to measure the size of the uterus and look for any other conditions that might be affecting their health. If everything checks out, endoscopic procedures will be used to evaluate the inside and outside of the pelvis in preparation for fibroid embolization.
Embolization is an outpatient procedure, usually performed under local anesthetic. A tiny incision (roughly 1 centimeter) in your upper thigh allows a tiny catheter to be inserted into the femoral artery. Using x-ray guidance, a trained physician locates the feeder vessels which supply blood to each fibroid. Microscopic, inert particles are injected to block these vessels. Without a steady blood supply, the fibroids begin to starve and shrink.
