Uterine fibroids: Are They Cancerous or Life Threatening?
By Nilutpal Gogoi

WHAT ARE UTERINE FIBROIDS?

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors. In simple words uterine fibroids are non-cancerous muscle tumors. Uterine fibroids are not at al related to cancer.

UTERINE FIBROIDS LOCATION

Uterine cancers attack the main reproductive organ ?the uterus. Uterine fibroids remain attached to the uterus wall. Uterine fibroids can also develop within the uterine wall. Uterine fibroids are also known as Myoma, Fibromyoma, and Leiomyoma.

UNDERSTANDING CELLS, TISSUES, ORGANS AND TUMORS

Cells are the basic units of our lives. New cells are born when the old ones die out. These new-born normal cells divide and grow to form tissues. Tissues of the same kind combine to form our organs. Mentionably, our bodies need a constant refurbishment of such new cells. But at times this automatic process (of cells taking birth as some die) gets a jolt. During such crucial junctures, the tumors take control of certain parts of our bodies. Therefore, tumors are mass of extra tissue cells. They appear as abnormal growth mass of the cells.

TUMORS: BENIGN & MALIGNANT

First and foremost, benign tumors are not cancerous and are not life threatening. Second, malignant or cancerous tumors are life-threatening. Third, benign tumors can be easily removed by the surgeon. Fourth, the benign tumors do not spread to other parts of the body. Malignant tumors do. Fifth, benign tumors rarely reform once they are removed. But malignant tumors can return.

BENIGN CONDITIONS OF THE UTERUS

The benign conditions of the uterus are fibroids, Endometriosis and Endometrial hyperplasia.
