Fibroids

Fibroids are common, benign, tumours of smooth muscle usually occurring in the

uterus

. Fibroids can vary from the size of a pea to bigger than a grapefruit. They can grow in various positions on the uterus. The symptoms a woman has will depend on the number, size and position of the fibroids. Fibroids do not produce symptoms in all women, but may lead to prolonged or

heavy menstrual bleeding

, pressure or pain in the pelvis. In addition to

hysterectomy

, less invasive surgical procedures are used to remove uterine fibroids.

Gynaecologists

diagnose and treat patients with fibroids.
