Fibroids are non cancerous tumors. Although, they can grow to large sizes. Some patients have huge fibroids at the time of diagnosis which were symptomless. But even very small fibroids sometime can cause symptoms.

Where the fibroids grows determine the symptoms. If a fibroid grows inside the uterine cavity can cause bleeding which can be harvy and irregular.

If this fibroids grows on outer surface of the uterus they may reach to a large size before detection.

They don’t require any treatment. 70-80% of women have fibroids by the age of 50, but only 30-50% of them will experience symptoms.
