Fibroids

Fibroid tumors (also called myomas and leiomyomas) are benign (non-cancerous) accumulations of smooth muscle tissue from the muscular walls of the uterus. A woman may develop multiple fibroids and the tumors can vary in size from smaller than a marble to larger than a grapefruit and may increase in size over time. Fibroids can be located within the inner, middle or outer layers of the uterine wall or on stalk-like projections on the outside of the uterus. Fibroids can affect women of any age but are most commonly seen in women in their 30s and 40s.
