Also known as a myoma or leiomyoma, a benign (noncancerous) tumor found in the wall of the uterus. Fibroids are extremely common; more than 40% of all women develop fibroids, and most do not cause symptoms or require treatment. Some fibroids, however, may cause problems with fertility and should be removed. They may also be removed if they are growing large enough to cause pressure on other organs, such as the bladder, or are causing abnormal bleeding.
