Fibroids – which are sometimes called myomas, leiomyomas, or leiomyomata uteri – are muscular tissue growths that occur within the walls of the uterus. Fibroids, which can range from the size of a pea to a melon, may present few or no symptoms, and are usually benign. Heavy menstrual bleeding is one of the most common symptoms of fibroids, but 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, but you aren't experiencing any of these symptoms, you probably won't require treatment.
