Alternative Fibroid Tumor Treatments

For many women, the discovery that there are alternative fibroid tumor treatments gives a ray of hope in a situation that may have seemed hopeless! Although the vast majority of fibroid tumors are completely harmless, this does not mean that they do not cause problems. Indeed, many women suffer from almost unbearable symptoms.

Most women with fibroids are offered treatment by conventional doctors which simply mask their symptoms rather than treating the root cause. This means that the fibroids often continue to grow or can even regrow completely after surgical or hormonal treatment. The causes of fibroids is complex and there is no “one” cause and very often fibroids grow because of the subtle interaction of a number of circumstances. This means that effective treatment can be quite complex and finding a doctor who specializes in alternative fibroid tumor treatments can be difficult and, if you are lucky enough to find one, very costly.

Conventional doctors often recommend leaving the fibroids until the menopause when they will shrink naturally due to a decrease in estrogen. This is all very well if the fibroids are small and causing no problems. For many women this is not a viable option as the symptoms can be so severe.

The symptoms of fibroids include bloating, abdominal pain, heavy menstrual bleeding, (often leading to anemia) pain during intercourse and infertility.

Alternative fibroid tumor treatments can work well if followed correctly as they consider the possible causes of fibroids and treat the root causes, not just the symptoms. There is usually a multi-faceted approach which may combine different treatment methods, such as herbal treatments, dietary and lifestyle and these can work in conjunction to shrink the fibroids to an insignificant size. In many cases the fibroids will disappear altogether.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Is this pain from fibroid tumor?
    I gave birth via c-section after 14 hours of labor 4 months ago. I was told I had a grapefruit sized fibroid tumor. (not sure the location at this time)
    I’ve gotten my monthly and oh my gosh. Now that I know what labor feels like: that’s how painful my periods are. I seriously think I’m in labor! No wonder why I did it medication free for 14 hours.
    I’m also having BAD hip pain. Its worse now with my period but has been hurting since giving birth. Its only in my right hip. Feels like someone’s trying to rip out my hip bone.
    Coud these 2 things be from the tumor?
    Thanks
    He’s talk to me about it, but I guess I never put my period pain and the tumor together, ya know? The only way to get it out is a hysterectomy. I’m 26. My husband and I just had our first. We’d like more….Doc wants to wait till we’re done. I’d like one more at the least


    • ANSWER:
      A grapefruit sized tumor is huge. Hasn’t your doctor talked to you about it????
      I just had my uterus removed in December because I was full of tumors, but not that big. Golf ball. And I had so many I felt “full” all the time. I also had low back pain and the last year had a hard time having bowel movements because the tumor was pressing into my rectum. I didn’t know it either. I just thought i needed more fiber in my diet. I had an ultrasound and there it was. So, I had the surgery and it was a breeze. No regrets.
      Having just the fibroid removed usually doesn’t help because they grow back.
      Honestly, talk to your doctor about this issue.
      As far as the hip pain, that could be a pressed sciatic nerve there from the labor. I’d see a chiropractor.

  2. QUESTION:
    Can i still get pregnant with a fibroid tumor?
    Me and my husband wants another baby but i have fibroid tumor on my left side of my uterus is there a chance i can carry a baby full term or there can be chance that i can have a miscarriage has anyone had fibroid tumor and still got pregnant or should i talk to my doctor first before i get pregnant again.I am not having any pain with this tumor.

    • ANSWER:
      The correct answer is always talk with your doctor just to be 100 % sure…but I am definately going to tell you that i am 5 1/2 months pregnant with a fibroid tumor on my left side also. I was told by my doctor that it is still possible to get pregnant but alot harder. You may miscarrry alot, like I did at first. I actually had 4 miscarriages before successfully carrying my new daughter. My only bit of advice for you is to just relax, get more informed by asking your doctor and looking it up online, and just be prepared for such things as miscarriage. Who knows…you may be the one in a million who doesnt have to go through having a miscarriage first. Good luck and all the best to you!

  4. QUESTION:
    i have a fibroid tumor on my rt ovary and it is causing severe pain. ….?
    I found out that i had this tumor about 2 months ago. and i do not have any medical insurance to have the surgery thath is needed in order to get rid of the severe pain that i am in on a daily basis. I have worked up about ,000. going into the emergency room where they will not hepl me if you know of an agency or hospital who can help i will appreciate it.

    • ANSWER:
      Most hospitals have some sort of charity program. Ask, though the surgeon and anestheiologist don’t necessarily give discounts.

      Also there’s a new, non-surgical technique for fibroids that is an alternative to surgery and since it isn’t invasive, it should also be less expensive. This website tells about it. Call them, they may know of a provider nearer to your home. http://www.fibroidtexas.com/

      Lastly look through your phone book for a county health clinic. It’s a pain to use it, but they are usually either free or sliding scale and you might get the help you need.

      Good luck.

  5. QUESTION:
    What can be used for dealing with a fibroid tumor?
    What type of natural remedy can be used for dealing with a large fibroid tumor? My mother has almost died because she literally bleed to death (menstrauting heavily for months). She became severly anemic with a blood volume level of a mere 3. Normal is 12. She recieved 5 blood transfusions over a 2 month span. They believe it’s all been a result of the fibroid tumor in her uterus. She is trying desperatly to get their insurance company to cover it but they are jerking my parents around calling all of this pre existing and saying they wont cover a dime for any of it including the bills already. My parents are already 100,000 in medical bills. They will not cover the surgery until Nov. of this year. What can be taken naturally in the mean time to help her not have the severe pain and bleeding. Her stomach is so bloated she looks like she’s 5 months pregnant. She always has pain and she always bleeds so bad. I’m worried so badly about my mom. Someone help please!!!

    • ANSWER:
      If this were my mother I would take her to the nearest ER in the nearest large hospital, I would choose an Teaching hospital if there’s one near you. They have the best and the most of all the doctors available to you.
      Many of these hospitals have benefactors that help the needy and if you ask, they will tell you. We did and they had a large benefactor program they did not advertise.
      It took about an hour to O.K. me, and pay all my medical bills for me.
      Whether they do or not, they will help. It sounds like your mom needs help right now, not when she can afford it.
