Uterine Fibroids, Have You Had Your Check Up?

Fibroids are benign muscular tumors that grow in the wall of the uterus. They can be as small as seeds or as big as grapefruits causing a person to look six to seven months pregnant. They can grow as a single tumor or multiple tumors. Not all women have symptoms of fibroids; however, those who do have symptoms experience heavy menstrual bleeding, pressure on the bladder, rectal pressure, and pain in the abdomen, lower back, and pelvis.
