Some patients may also complain of heavy periods (due to fibroids).
2-5% Fibroids are benign round growths of the muscle of the womb; they are very common especially in women of reproductive age.
Approximately one fifth to one third of all women have fibroids.
Fibroids are more common amongst some racial groups such as Africans and afro Caribbean women. Fibroids can vary in size from a few millimetres to that of a full term pregnancy.
Fibroids also vary in location, either inside the cavity wall itself (intramural), bulging from outside wall of the womb (subserous) or bulging inside the cavity of the womb (submucousal).
Fibroid can be found hanging on a stalk either outside or inside the womb (pedunculated).
Cervical fibroids are fibroid in the cervix (neck of the womb). The growth of fibroid depends on the amount of hormones oestrogen and progesterone in the body and subsequently increases in size with advanced age. Fibroids may also grow during pregnancy due to excess production of the oestrogen during pregnancy.
