Many fibroids are small and cause no symptoms. But about one-fourth of white women and one-half of black women eventually, develop fibroids that cause symptoms. Fibroids are more common among women who are overweight.
If fibroids grow too large, they may not be able to get enough blood. As a result, they begin to degenerate and cause pain.

What Is The Bladder?
The bladder is located at the bottom of the abdomen and is part of the urinary tract. It fills with urine, which is then passed out through the urethra. In men, the urethra passes through the prostate gland and penis, whereas in women the urethra is shorter and opens just above the vagina. Cells line the inside of the bladder, which is called urothelial or transitional cells. There is also a thin layer of cells beneath the lining of the bladder. The outer part of the bladder wall contains a thick layer of muscle tissue which contracts to push out the urine.

How is gum disease diagnosed?
During an examination, the dentist or hygienist inspects the color and firmness of the gums. They test teeth for looseness. The bite is checked. At some point, they insert a small measuring instrument between the tooth and gum to measure the depth of the pockets. If the depths are greater than the norm of 1-3 millimeters, they may suggest improved oral hygiene measures and/or more deliberate therapy.
Why are my gums bleeding?
Gums bleed when they are irritated and inflamed which is not considered normal. This is due to the plaque being left on the teeth which cause inflammation called gingivitis and if not addressed can develop into gum disease. Over time, if not cleaned off through daily brushing and interdentally cleaning, the plaque can turn into a hard deposit called tartar or calculus which will require professional scaling by your dentist or hygienist to remove it.
