It is important not to confuse
fibroids and ovarian
, precisely because
they are similar in many on the surface.
Muscle tissue forming benign tumors
are fibroids. They
vary widely in size, may make intercourse painful, put
pressure on the bladder, causes bleeding, and hinder
child-bearing. Fibroids are related to estrogen
production. They occur most when it is highest - in
women who can have a child, but are at an advanced age.
Declining estrogen after menopause tends to shrink them,
while women below 20 rarely have them. But up to 50%
women may have them sometime.
Ovarian cysts form when follicles,
or little ovarian sacs containing the eggs, fail to
release them or, after release, close up and remain.
Cyst may contain a variety of fluid (including dark
blood), fat, and types of tissue. Though nearly always
harmless, but like fibroids, some
do indeed spell danger to other organs, to life and
Both have systemic causes -
genetic predisposition, infections or environment and
lifestyle related consequences of stress, diet,
sedentary habits, etc.
Rushing to remove either
fibroids or the ovarian cyst syndrome
surgically, or for
that matter, by any therapy that is focused on the
symptoms alone is not a good idea. Neither of these can
ultimately guarantee non-recurrence.
It seems that the only thing that
works for cyst removal is holistic remedies. It works
better than conventional therapies and also natural
treatments for PCOS. Treating the body as a whole,
holistic remedies eradicated the root causes, and once
achieved, the cyst never come back.
