Uterine fibroids are benign (not cancer) growths that develop from the muscle tissue of the uterus. The size, shape, and location of fibroids can vary greatly. They may be present inside the uterus, on its outer surface or within its wall, or attached to it by a stem-like structure. A woman may have only one fibroid or many of varying sizes. A fibroid may remain very small for a long time and suddenly grow rapidly, or grow slowly over a number of years. They can cause heavy periods, pelvic pain, back pain, or urinary frequency. We offer many treatment options for fibroids, including but not limited to surgical removal and hormone balancing.
