Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 14, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Friday, Jun. 14, 1974 Lawrence Lamb M.D, Dear Dr. Lamb I am writing to you about my father-in-law. We have a very close relationship, and I love him very much. 1 am very worried. 1 fear he is doing himself more harm than good. For about a year now he has been urinating blood. He refuses to see a doctor and says he has seen many of his friends go to a doctor and only become worse. He is 64. Dr. Lamb, could you please tell me what it could be that he has and how serious it could be. What can I do for him? I would appreciate any helpful information you can give me. Dear Reader Get him to go to a doctor without fail. Anyone who is passing blood in the urine should be carefully examined for the possibility of cancer. Painless bleeding "in the urine which starts suddenly sometimes means cancer of the kidney. I don't mean to frighten you. but your father-in-law must understand the significance of his problem. Less serious problems can cause bleeding. They too require medical attention. I don't believe there is anything you can really do for him other than to do your absolute best to get him to a doctor for a careful examination. I would like to take opportunity to encourage everyone who has this kind of a problem at any time to go immediately to a doctor for a complete medical examination. Time, in these situations, can sometimes save a person's life. DEAR DR. LAMB I have what is known as a nonmalignant fibroid tumor of the uterus. This was confirmed by my doctor a year ago. He said very little about it. and this is why I feel compelled to ask questions. Is there a possibility that a tumor of this kind would hinder pregnancy? My husband and I have been hoping for children for two years, but have had no success in our efforts to have a child. Can you explain what a fibroid" is0 And. can they cause bleeding? Dear Reader A fibroid, sometimes called leiomyomata. is usually a fairly "smooth, round tumor in the body of the uterus made up of connective tissue or the fibers similar to those in scar tissue. This means it's fairly firm or fiberous. It is not cancer. Fibroids will enlarge in time in most women. Very small ones can be tolerated and some women have gotten pregnant in the presence of a fibroid tumor. The location and sixe has a lot to do with this and it's possible for the presence of such a tumor to interfere with normal pregnancy. Your horoscope By Jeane Dixon Occasionally these tumors are the cause for bleeding. However, no woman should assume this, and any woman who has unexplained uterine bleeding should immediately seek the attention of her doctor An examination under these circumstances may detect an early malignancy and make it possible for a complete cure. Delay may mean disaster. Fibioid tumors as they become larger may get big enough to cause distention of the lower abdomen and can even cause pressure on the bladder and bowels. Whether or not a fibroid tumor should be removed depends a lot on the circumstances. If it's small, there is no bleeding and it doesn't seem to be enlarging or causing the patient any problem, the doctor may elect not to bother it. However, if it's producing symptoms by causing pressure on the bladder or by causing bleeding, he may elect to remove it. Similarly, he may decide to remove one if he thinks it could be interfering with the possibility of achieving a desired pregnancy.
