Uterine fibroids are noncancerous (benign) growths in the uterus. They can be small and cause no symptoms or be large and painful. There may be one or many fibroids. Although troubling, they do not increase your risk for uterine cancer.
You may have a uterine fibroid if you have symptoms such as:
- Pelvic pain
- Heavy menstrual bleeding
- Long periods
- Trouble urinating
Many women develop uterine fibroids during their lives, and the experts at University of Miami Health are here to diagnose your condition, treat your accompanying symptoms, and help you stay healthy.
