Four Signs You May Have Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are benign tumors that grow inside the uterus and affect 40% of women between the ages of 35 and 50. To learn more about fibroids and how we treat them, visit our fibroids page.

There are many potential symptoms that uterine fibroids may cause. Some women may have one symptom while other women may have them all! If these symptoms sound familiar, they may be due to uterine fibroids and you may want to see a physician.

Four Signs You May Have Uterine Fibroids:

1. Heavy Periods
If you have abnormally heavy periods, also known as menorrhagia, you may have fibroids. If you are soaking through one or more tampons or pads every hour or two, your periods last longer than a week, or your flow is disrupting your daily activities, you may want to consult with a doctor to see if fibroids are the cause of your heavy periods.

2. Fatigue
Fatigue may be caused by anemia in the setting of heavy periods. When your body loses too much blood, you may become anemic, meaning the blood can’t carry as much oxygen. This can make you feel tired.

3. Bulk Related Symptoms
If you feel like you are always having to urinate, getting up during the night to urinate, experiencing changes in bowel movements, or noticing abdominal girth, fibroids may be your problem.

4. Pelvic Pain
While there are many causes of chronic pelvic pain, uterine fibroids may be the culprit.

If you think you may have fibroids or you have been diagnosed with fibroids and would prefer a minimally invasive procedure over conventional surgery, schedule a consultation with Dr. Jon or Dr. Chris by calling (716) 836-4646.

Yttrium-90 (Y-90) Cancer Treatment Now Available at Our Park Club Lane Location

At Great Lakes Medical imaging, we continue to set the bar for world class patient care. We are proud to announce that we offer Yttrium-90 selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) in our outpatient Park Club Lane location. In fact, we were the first providers in New York State to administer Y90 from the comforts of an outpatient clinic and the fifth in the country. Additionally, our doctors at GLMI are specially trained in transradial catheterization techniques, meaning the entire procedure can be performed through a tiny entry point at the wrist, rather than the more conventional groin site. This results in improved patient comfort and fewer access site related complications.

What Is SIRT (Selective Internal Radiation Therapy)

Selective internal radiation therapy, or SIRT, uses microscopic resin beads (SIR-Spheres) as a means to carry radioactive element Y90, used to treat certain types of liver cancer. These Y90 impregnated spheres deliver a dose of internal radiation to tumors up to 40 times greater than conventional external beam radiation therapy, all while better sparing healthy tissue. This maximizes the treatment’s effectiveness and reduces the risk of injury to the liver. 

Who is a candidate for the treatment?

This treatment is indicated for patients with certain types of liver cancer including HCC, metastatic colorectal cancer, and metastatic neuroendocrine tumor. As every patient’s scenario is unique, the medical team at Great Lakes Medical Imaging would be happy to help you decide if this treatment is best suited for your condition.

How It Works

If you would like more information on whether or not you are a candidate for Y90 SIRT, please contact us.
