Uterine fibroids are benign abnormal growths of the muscle wall of the uterus. They are sometimes referred to by several other names including leiomyoma and fibromyoma. Fibroids develop in up to 70% of women but only a small proportion of women with fibroids develop symptoms. If there are no symptoms there is no need to worry about fibroids.
