What are fibroids?
Fibroids are benign (not cancerous) tumors (abnormal cell growths) inside the uterus.
Fibroids can be located in four regions of the uterus. They can be located in the cavity of the uterus (submucosal), within the muscle wall of the uterus (intramural), on the outside of the uterus (subserosal), or attached to the uterus by a stalk (pedunculated). Fibroids may be located in one or a combination of these areas.
How do I know if I have fibroids?
The most common symptom associated with fibroids is heavy or irregular menstrual cycles. Some women may also have very painful menstrual cycles. Fibroids cause some women to feel pelvic pressure or heaviness from the weight of the uterus. Some women have pain during intercourse. If you have any of these problems, a solution may be available.
