The symptoms of fibroid tumors can vary greatly depending on their type and location in your body. The size of them will also effect the symptoms that you experience. Fortunately most of these types of tumors are benign (non-cancerous), but they can start interfering with your life. Since these can grow the whole time you have estrogen in your system, chances are that sooner or later you will experience symptoms even if it is much later. Of course, they may start to fade after you enter into menopause as well.
For those women not fortunate enough to have microscopic tumors that essentially do nothing to draw attention to themselves, heavy menstrual bleeding, and pain during menstruation, and pressure are usually the common things they will suffer. Most times these will not interfere with daily life, though this can change as the size of the tumor increases.
When that happens the symptoms of fibroid tumors can include pelvic pain and pressure. This can put pressure on other organs and include trouble urinating on inability to control the bladder. It may also cause lower back pain while pushing on the bowels causing constipation. Heavy or abnormal bleeding differing from a typical menstruation cycle in that can affect daily activities.
Do not underestimate the ability of these benign tumors to interfere with your life and health. Some of them can get very large, and some can be extremely painful as well. You do not need to suffer through them though. There are ways of treating them beyond surgery.
