Hysterectomy procedure involves the surgical removal of the uterus. There might be several reasons for this.
When is a Hysterectomy Procedure Necessary?
The following conditions might require the removal of the uterus:
- Cancer of the cervix, uterus, ovaries or endometrium
- Uterine Fibroids
- Abnormal growth of the tissue lining the walls of the uterus
- Uterine Prolapse
- Severe and chronic pelvic pain
There are other conditions that might also require a hysterectomy, like abnormal vaginal bleeding. All these above conditions might have alternative treatments. If these treatments fail, hysterectomy might be considered as the only option available during a hysterectomy diagnosis.
