Statistical Solution For Fibroids Removal

May 14th 2014 at 6:19 AM

Uterine fibroids, according to statistics, are formed in 65% of women under 45 years old and are the most common reason for hysterectomy (removal of the uterus). Genetic mutation, "responsible" for the formation of the vast majority of these tumors revealed Finnish scientists.

Fibroids - chaotic tangle of interlacing smooth muscle fibers in different weights and sizes. Typically, fibroid node from a few millimeters to several centimeters in diameter, but the largest site of uterine referred to in the medical literature of the world, weighed 63 kg.

Although uterine fibroids are benign tumors, it nevertheless capable complicates life. There is development of uterine fibroids accompanied by irregular menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), sensation of pain and pressure in the abdomen, when uterine growth, menorrhagia become more plentiful and can lead to the development of anemia.

Among the effects of fibroids there is disruption of adjacent organs and infertility. According to statistics, uterine cancer is formed in 65% of women under 45 years old and is the most common reason for hysterectomy (removal of the uterus).

Given all of this, the importance of studying the formation mechanisms of uterine fibroids is difficult to overestimate.

Journal «Science» (Science) has announced the publication of Finnish scientists who were able to identify the gene mutation that causes the occurrence of this type of tumors.

A group of scientists from the University of Helsinki (Finland) conducted a study in which the genetic structure was analyzed fibroids and sequenced more than 20,000 genes in a group of 18 tumors.
