Uterine fibroids, which are noncancerous tumors in the uterus, have raised concerns of fertility and cancer in women. I'm Shelby Cullinan for the dailyRx News Network. Two recent studies found that many women had fears that uterine fibroids would lead to future health problems, including cancer. Women also had fears that they would eventually need a hysterectomy. The researchers, led by Dr. Elizabeth A Stewart from the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility at the Mayo Clinic and Mayo Medical School in Minnesota, also found that African American women reported more severe symptoms of uterine.
Fibroids, including heavy or longer than normal menstrual periods, than other women. African American women with fibroids had significantly more symptoms and we had some indication that this might be true before. But what we found is that the disparities in fibroids for African American women were confounded at every step. They had more symptoms before seeking treatment Consult with your physician to learn more about the treatments for uterine fibroids. To keep up to date with all the latest health news visit dailyRx.

Dr. Paul MacKoul MD Makes Minimally Invasive Fibroid Removal Possible Helenes Story
I have been suffering from fibroids and endometriosis for over 20 years, and I had very intense pain, back problems, lower stomach problems, headaches from being so anemic. And it controlled my life. I think my first procedure was probably '95. And so since '95, I've been going through different procedures with different doctors, and nothing worked. I would do the surgery, and I would be fine for a month or two. And then I would say the longest I've ever been OK was for three months, and then bam here it comes again.
One of the doctors that I went into, he told me that the best advice that he could give me was to just go ahead and have a hysterectomy. And then he started laughing and said that that was his best advice for the day. And then I told him, thanks, but no thanks. And I walked out. I had a cyst rupture on my right ovary. And I ended up in the emergency room where I had to do surgeries to remove my appendix, because it kind of fused my appendix and my fallopian tube together.
After I got out of that surgery, my GYN at the time, she told me, I want you to go and see Dr. MacKoul. She said, this is the only doctor the only doctor that I want you to see. I went in to see Dr. MacKoul. He was pleasant, and he took the time out to explain to me what was going on and do all his little drawings. Dr. MacKoul recommended a LAAM myomectomy, because I wanted to retain my uterus. He told me if I had any questions just to call him,.
And he would explain anything that I didn't quite understand. Then he actually came and sat with me before I actually was taken in for the surgery. And he went over again what we're going to be doing, and then he told my family to just trust him. I was in good hands. I did not come across a specialist until I actually met Dr. MacKoul. Not only did he tell me what my problem was, not only did he tell me what mistakes had been done with my surgeries prior.
That caused my endometriosis to get worse but he fixed the problem. I haven't had any pain no back problems, no stomach problems, no headaches. I finally decided it was time for me to do what I wanted to do. Three months later, my dad had asked me, would I go with him to Africa. And I told him, sure, and so we went to Africa for a month. This was something that I would not have done prior to having the surgery. The energy that I didn't feel I had before to be able to do.
My master's, now I'm working on my master's. I have the energy where I'm doing my master's, working, and also helping my niece with her homework, and now having to travel with her to go to her different events. I wish I had met Dr. MacKoul before. I wish I had heard about him before I went through all those other procedures. But looking back, with everything that I went through, I'm always telling other people about Dr. MacKoul. He is a true specialist. He is the only specialist I would recommend.

PMS and Estrogen Dominance
We are starting to get more and more women that are bringing their daughters now. It's so good to seeit's preventive medicine. The first thing the mother says is, They're terrible around their PMS symptoms, and their breasts are hurting them, and they're very irritable and it's just very difficult to be around my young girl at this time. So they bring them in and we do a salivary hormone test, check their estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and DHEA, because we also want to rule out stuff like PCOS and such as this.
But we, uh this is an indication that most of the time we see a low progesterone and what we do is we either give them botanicals or we give them a little bit of progesterone cream and it works wonders. I much prefer to use bioidentical estrogen and progesterone when I have to and I don't use the synthetic. So all that said, the estrogen dominance is big in the United States. The girls are coming inmothers bringing the girls in so we can check that at an earlier age, it's great to see that, it's a preventative, less girls on.
What Does That Really Mean Episode 1 Benign vs. Malignant
Hi. My name is Karen Selby, a patient and family advocate nurse at the Mesothelioma Center at Asbestos.

AntiReflux Laparoscopy Surgery PreOp Patient Education Medical tutorial
Your doctor has recommended that you undergo surgery to treat reflux disease. But what does that actually mean Your diaphragm is a muscle that separates your chest from your abdomen and helps you to breathe. Normally, the diaphragm has an opening for the esophagus to pass through where it connects with the stomach. At this point, the ringlike layer of muscle which acts as a oneway valve sometimes becomes lax. When you have reflux disease, the weakened muscle allows the contents of your stomach to back up into your esophagus. Patient Education.
This can cause considerable discomfort, often worse at night, with symptoms like heartburn, difficulty swallowing, chest pain and belching. Reflux disease is often caused by a hiatal hernia, pregnancy, an ulcer or tumor of the esophagus. About half of the patients with severe Reflux Disease often have a hiatal hernia, which is a tear in the diaphragm. After allowing a few minutes for the anesthetic to take effect a small incision is made above the umbilicus then, a hollow needle will be inserted through the abdominal wall. And the abdomen will be inflated with carbon dioxide.
An umbilical port is created for the laparoscope. Four more incisions will be made, with care taken to keep the openings as small as possible. Once in place, the laparoscope will provide tutorial images, so the surgeon can insert the instruments used to locate and pull back the liver in order to see the upper part of the stomach. Then, the surgeon cuts away the tissue that connects the liver and the stomach. Then the surgeon divides and separates the arteries that supply blood to the top of the stomach.
