Fibroids is a health condition were the womb is growths that are made up of muscle and fibrous tissue, and vary in size. They’re sometimes known as uterine myomas or leiomyomas.

As fibroids do not often cause symptoms, they’re sometimes diagnosed by chance during a routine gynaecological examination, test or scan. See a GP if you have persistent symptoms of fibroids so they can investigate possible causes. If the GP thinks you may have fibroids, they’ll usually refer you for an ultra sound to confirm the diagnosis.
