About Uterine Fibroid Tumors
Uterine fibroid tumors, also called myomas or leiomyomas, are benign growths that develop in the uterine cavity, uterine wall, or uterine muscle. While not inherently dangerous, these growths can cause potentially serious symptoms if they become numerous or large. Common symptoms include atypically heavy menstrual bleeding, over-long menstrual periods, and abdominal pain.
- Additional symptoms of fibroids might include bloating, frequent urination, constipation, and unexplained weight gain.
- A significant number of women 35 and older will develop uterine fibroids, with women of African descent having among the highest risk factors; an estimated 80% will develop uterine fibroids.
- The symptoms will depend upon the type of fibroid, size, and number.
