The short answer is, nope ❌While ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids share many of the same symptoms, they are not the same thing and therefore require different treatments. Here’s why:
Ovarian Cysts 👉 Form on the ovaries, as well as many other areas of the body, and are fluid-filled sacs that usually develop during ovulation.
Uterine Fibroids 👉 Non-cancerous muscular growths that can occur within the walls of the uterus.
Patients seeking treatment options for cysts should reach out to their gynae for further medical advice. If you have been diagnosed with fibroids and would like to learn more, please visit our website www.fibroids.co.za or send us a message online 🌸
