Uterine fibroids of small size, have no subjective or objective manifestations. Symptoms appear and grow with the increase in size and / or the number of nodes, the development of complications.
When uterine cancer pain depends on the size, location, tumor growth rate and the presence of complications. Most often, localized pain in the abdomen and lower back, and their nature and intensity can vary over a wide range of constant aching pain typical of fibroids with a slow growth rate, the sharp and cramping observed at birth myoma node.
Pain in the uterine myoma

You may experience symptoms from other organs as a result of compression of the uterus increased in size. At the same time may suffer from urinary bladder, urethra, ureters, rectum, which finds its reflection in the overall picture of the disease. Large myoma nodes, the sizes of which correspond to 20 weeks gestation or more, can cause the syndrome of compression of the inferior vena cava, growing in a horizontal position. The enlarged uterus may cause radicular pain due to compression of its sacral nerves.
One symptom is the presence of leucorrhoea, which have a slimy character with an increase in vaginal secretions due to the increase in blood levels of estradiol. If the selection gets a brownish color and fetid odor it causes necrosis of suspect mucosa overlying submucous myoma node.
