Q: What are calcified fibroids?

A: When a fibroid has outgrown its blood supply and has reached the final stage of degeneration or cell death, calcium deposits may develop on the remaining fibroid tissue. This is known as a ‘calcified’ fibroid and is usually most common in women who are approaching menopause. Just like fibroids prior to calcification (if symptoms become painful or life-impacting) UFE is a highly recommended treatment option for women who are suffering 🙏 If you’d like to learn more about UFE treatment, contact us today via our website www.fibroids.co.za or send us a message online 🌻
