Uterine Fibroids: Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

What are Uterine Fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths made up of connective and muscle tissues that appear in the wall of the uterus. Fibroids can develop as a single tumor, or multiple fibroid growths can line the uterine walls. They can be as small as an apple seed or as big as a tennis ball. In extreme cases, they may even exceed these sizes!
