Most women have small fibroids and do not experience symptoms.
The cause of uterine fibroids is unclear, but have been linked to the hormone estrogen (female hormone).
The different types of fibroids depend on the location where they form:
- Myometrial (in the wall of the uterus)
- Submucosal (under the surface of uterus)
- Subserosal (under covering of uterus)
- Pedunculated (outside the cavity of the uterus)
