Fibroids are common benign tumours which may cause fertility problems in women, depending on their location and size
Fibroids are common benign tumours located in the uterus. They are formed by muscle tissue and affect between two and four of every ten women. Their symptoms and treatment depend on their size and location. Thus, while in some cases no surgical procedure is necessary, in others it is advisable to have them removed by surgery to eliminate the symptoms and enable pregnancy.
