Menopause and Hot Flashes-Do I have any tumors?

When the “T” word is said during a conversation about a medical condition it builds up a strong sense of fear. While experiencing menopause this is something very serious to talk about to your doctor, especially after your menopause. First we need to define what kind of tumors we are speaking about.

What are Fibroids?

They are called Fibroids. Are small benign tumors that grow on the outside or inside within the smooth muscles of the uterine wall and are actually very common. About 30% of women have encountered larger fibroids at some point in their lives; these are the types which cause symptoms to occur where otherwise you might never know you had them.

Here are some other points to know about fibroids. Now if the fibroid s stay small, there is no need for much concern. However, a fibroid that grows quickly, is a warning sign that it is cancerous. When a woman has rapidly growing fibroids after menopause, the risk for developing cancer goes from 1 in a 1,000 to 1 in a hundred.

*Watch this FREE video for information on what fibroids are.

Upon reading and watching the video here is some added information to be mindful of. Post menopausal women need to be especially diligent about seeing their medical expert and bringing to their attention of these changes after having menopause and hot flashes.

I hope this information and resource has been helpful and I urge your to take every bit of it serious.

Here is my quote for your health:

While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us. ~Ben Franklin
