    Uterine leiomyosarcoma (ULMS) is a mesenchymal cancer arising from the smooth muscle and supporting tissue of the uterine muscular layer (myometrium). Mutated mesenchymal stem cells may initiate the mutations in the myometrium that lead to the subsequent malignant growth. ULMS tends to be an aggressive cancer with a poor prognosis. Uterine contractions may expel this polyp through the cervix into the vagina (infection, sloughing, ulceration) 3- Degenerative changes Poor blood supply may lead to degenerative changes, there are many forms. Hyaline degeneration. Cystic degeneration. Fatty degeneration. Calcareous degeneration Apart from causing a change in the consistency.

    Uterine fibroids, also known as uterine leiomyomas or fibroids, are benign smooth muscle tumors of the uterus. Most women have no symptoms while others may have painful or heavy periods. If large enough, they may push on the bladder causing a frequent need to urinate. They may also cause pain during sex or lower back pain. A woman can have one uterine fibroid or many.

It is estimated that uterine fibroids will affect 8 in 10 African American women and 7 in 10 Caucasian women by menopause.

    Uterine fibroids are a common non-cancerous tumour of the uterus. They are growths that develop in the connecting tissues of the uterus. They do not spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body and are not usually life-threatening. Uterine fibroids may grow in different parts of the uterus, but they most often develop in the uterine wall. Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumors in women of childbearing age. Fibroids are made of muscle cells and other tissues that grow in and around the wall of the uterus, or womb. The cause of fibroids is unknown. Risk factors include being African American or being overweight. Many women with fibroids have no symptoms.

Can anything be done to prevent or lower the risk of developing cancer. Unfortunately, the development of uterine fibroids cannot be prevented, basically.

Fibroid degeneration takes place when the fibroid has been increasing in size over a number of years, and its blood supply is no longer adequate to support the center of the tumor. Degeneration, involving cell death, occurs inside the fibroid, and calcification, where calcium is deposited in the fibroid tissue, may be seen on an ultrasound scan.

Malignant transformations of uterine leiomyomas occur very rarely. 1,2 The hypothesis that uterine leiomyosarcoma arise from or as a result of the malignant transformation of benign leiomyomas has not been proved.

3 A review of the literature suggests however, that only a limited number of case reports have demonstrated a histologic transition. Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths in the uterus. They are very common and often do not cause symptoms. However, fibroids sometimes do cause problems such as heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pressure or pain, and frequent urination.

Uterine fibroids are the most common benign tumour in women — they are a mixture of smooth muscle cells and fibroblasts, which form hard, round, whorled tumours in the myometrium.

They develop in women of reproductive age and are promoted and maintained by. Dear Shelley-Research has shown an incidence of degenerating fibroids becoming malignant sarcomas.

As the tumor out grows the blood supply, and begins to degenerate many patient also experience increased, and severe abdominal pain. Uterine fibroids are leiomyomata of the uterine smooth muscle.

As other leiomyomata, they are benign, but may lead to excessive menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia), often cause anemia and may lead to infertility. A rare form of these tumors is uterine lipoleiomyoma—benign tumors consisting of a mixture of adipocytes and smooth muscle cells.

Uterine lipoleiomyomata have been observed together. Unlike most other programs we have NEVER lost a patient, NEVER had to remove a uterus, NEVER transfused a patient any blood, and we have safely removed over tumors from one patient, and removed a tumor the size of a full term from another.
