Cost Of Treating Fibroid In Nigeria


Fibroid affects the quality of life of several women. In Nigeria, the number of fibroid cases is drastically escalating. However, diagnosis isn't the major problem.


Cost is one of the factors hindering people from accessing quality care. Some women often seek other alternatives because of the procedure's cost.


There are several options for treating fibroids, categorized as:

  • Invasive
  • Noninvasive 


Invasive method: This requires surgery, and your doctor is the best person to determine if you need one, depending on the severity of your case. The two common surgeries to help remove fibroids are abdominal myomectomy and laparoscopy myomectomy.


Noninvasive method: This uses drugs and other non-surgical methods to help remove fibroids. 


Both methods are effective in treating and managing fibroids.

This depends on the hospital and the type of treatment involved. 

  • Type of hospital: You can go to a private or government-owned hospital for treatment. As we all know, government hospitals are more affordable than private ones. However, it’s still a bit pricey in public hospitals. 
  • Nature of surgery: If you’re undergoing an abdominal myomectomy, it costs between 150,000 to 300,000. It’s considered the cheapest procedure for treating fibroids. A laparoscopy myomectomy costs between 250,000 to 400,000 and higher in other private hospitals.


Treating fibroids costs a lot of money. Due to a lack of adequate access to such services, some people turn to other traditional alternatives, which may be harmful. In some cases, it worsens the condition of fibroids.
