Myomectomy is the term used to describe a surgical procedure which is performed to remove fibroid tumors. Fibroids are non cancerous smooth muscle tumors that can grow from within the wall or the lining of the uterus. Fibroid tumors can cause heavy bleeding during your menstrual cycle, irregular bleeding, pain, pressure, and occasionally frequent urination or constipation. Myomectomy is the preferred treatment for women who want to keep their uterus, or because future fertility is desired.
