What are
uterine fibroids?


Uterine fibroids are tumors or lumps made of
muscle cells and other tissue that grow within the wall of the uterus. Fibroids
may grow as a single tumor or in clusters.

than one inch in size or can grow to eight inches across or more. A bunch or
cluster of fibroids can also vary in size.
