What are Fibroids?

Fibroids, also known as uterine fibroids or leiomyomas, are noncancerous growths that develop in the uterus. The growths are made up of muscle and fibrous tissue and can vary in size from very small to several inches in diameter. Fibroids are common in women of reproductive age and are often asymptomatic.

In some cases, fibroids can cause symptoms such as heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain, and pressure. Treatment for fibroids depends on the size, location, and symptoms associated with the growths. In some cases, no treatment is necessary. However, if symptoms are severe or if the fibroids are interfering with fertility or pregnancy, treatment options may include medication, minimally invasive procedures, or surgery.
