Fibroids – which are sometimes called myomas, leiomyomas, or leiomyomata uteri – are muscular tissue growths that typically occur within the walls of the uterus. Fibroids, which can range from the size of a pea to a melon, are usually benign, but some can be cancerous. Although many fibroids do not cause symptoms, heavy menstrual bleeding is one of the most common complaint associated with fibroids. Pain or pressure in the pelvis, pain during intercourse, frequent urination and infertility can occur in some cases. If your healthcare provider informs you that you have fibroids, you have many options that range from simple monitoring, medication, ablative and surgical procedures.
