About Uterine Fibroids – Symptoms, Diagnosis and Surgeries

Uterine fibroids are tumors that grow on the uterus. They can be of different sizes, shapes, and locations in the uterus. Fibroids can cause pain and pressure, but they usually don’t prevent pregnancy or make it more difficult to carry a baby to term. When they do interfere with these things, surgery may be an option for treatment. 

Uterine fibroids are a type of tumor that can develop in or on the uterus. They’re not cancer themselves, but they may cause complications during pregnancy like bleeding and infection due to their proximity to other organs inside your womb (including access to blood vessels).

Uterine fibroids are a relatively rare type of condition that can cause heavy menstrual bleeding. They’re estimated to affect 1 in every 100 women, but there’s been an increase over recent years due to the rise in maternal mortality rates and obesity among pregnant females which leaves them more susceptible during their pregnancies when it comes time for delivery
