What Are Fibroids?

Fibroids are noncancerous growths that form in the uterus. They're most common during your childbearing years.

They rarely turn into cancer and do not increase your risk of cancer.

Many women don't know they have fibroids unless they grow and cause:

  • Pain.
  • Changes to their periods.
  • Other symptoms.

Our experts can diagnose fibroids through a pelvic exam and minimally-invasive imaging.

How Do You Treat Fibroids?

If fibroids have mild or no symptoms, your doctor might suggest careful watching and waiting to see if symptoms worsen. But if you need treatment, rest assured there are many good options.

These might include:

  • Medicines.
  • Ultrasound.
  • Surgery.
