Benign polyps or tumors (fibroids or myomas) in the uterus, common in women in their 30s, can impair fertility by blocking the fallopian tubes or by disrupting implantation. However, many women who have fibroids can become pregnant.
They are also called uterine myomas, fibromyomas or leiomyomas. Their size can vary. Some are the same size as a pea and some can be as big as a melon. Fibroids can increase in size, decrease in size or even go away with time.
Uterine fibroids, known as leiomyoma uteri, are tumors of the smooth muscle of the uterus.
Fibroid also called 'uterine leiomyoma' is a gynaecological disorder characterised by slow growing tumour of the muscle and fibrous tissue of the uterus. Fibroid of the uterus vary in size and number.
