What Are Uterine Fibroids?
Fibroids are non-cancerous (benign) growths in the wall of the uterus. As many as two out of three women in the United States will develop uterine fibroids by age 50. Most won't have symptoms and won't need treatment.
But for some, uterine fibroids are painful and challenging. Fibroids can cause excessive menstrual bleeding, abnormal periods, pain, bloating, frequent urination and infertility. Find out about the treatment options at UVA.
