What are the Most Common Differences Between Cyst and Myoma

Between the Cyst and Myoma briefly looks the same, but the two diseases in the female reproductive organs is proved to have some differences. For more details, here are some differences between the Cyst and Myoma

Definition :
Benign tumor wrapped in a membrane kind of tissue and fluid-filled.
Location :
Usually found in the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, and also can grow in the vagina and the vulva (the external female genitalia) and also can occur in other body parts such as the gums.
Symptoms :
  • Pain in lower abdomen
  • Pain during menstruation
  • Often feel to stools or pee.
  • In later stages may be palpable lump in the abdomen. But, there is a type of cyst that does not give pain, so women do not realize it.
Causes :
Until now not known for sure, so can not look for ways to prevent it. But it is suspected that the cyst caused by contamination of ingredients that are carcinogenic, such as chemical substances.
Treatments :
Depending on the type of cyst
  1. Non-Neoplastic Cystic. Benign nature and usually will deflate itself after 2-3 months.
  2. Neoplastic Cystic treated through surgery. Relatively easily removed and does not endanger the health of the sufferer

Definition :
Wrap the uterine muscle that turns into a benign tumor. Simple terms, the meat-growing in the womb.
Location :
Most of the myoma grows in the lining of the uterus (myoma uteri). A fraction longer to grow in the cervix (cervical myoma uteri). Can cause infertility, because it would interfere with the entry of sperm into the uterus.
Symptoms :
  • Pain in lower abdomen, or around the hip
  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Menstrual disorders, such as pain during menstruation, menstrual bleeding very much, and irregular menstruation.
  • Stomach feels full.
  • Some women sometimes complain about the high frequency of urination.
Causes :
  1. Hormonal factors, especially the hormone estrogen. Myoma tends to develop in the reproductive period, and can grow rapidly during pregnancy. Myoma usually shrink after menopause when estrogen levels decline.
  2. Other factors such as emotional imbalance, for example, often stress, low immunity, and unbalanced lifestyle.
Treatments :
Can be done in two ways:
  1. Myomectomy: surgical removal of the myoma without removal of the uterus.
  2. Hysterectomy: surgical removal of the myoma simultaneously with the removal of uterus
