What is Uterine Fibroma?

Description of the disease

Uterine fibroma is a benign tumor that forms from the muscle tissue of the uterus. It can occur inside the uterine cavity as well as on its surface. Uterine fibroma is most common in women aged 30 to 50.


  • Subserosal fibroma: located on the surface of the uterus
  • Intramural fibroma: located within the uterine wall
  • Submucosal fibroma: located within the uterine cavity


Symptoms of uterine fibroma may include menstrual irregularities, painful periods, lower abdominal pain, increased urination, pain during sexual intercourse, and an increase in abdominal size.


The exact causes of uterine fibroma are not established, but hormonal changes are believed to influence its development.


Diagnosis of uterine fibroma includes ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, and hysteroscopy.


Treatment of uterine fibroma may include observation, medication, surgical removal of the tumor, embolization, and radiofrequency ablation.


There are no exact methods of preventing uterine fibroma, but a healthy lifestyle and regular medical check-ups can contribute to early detection and treatment of this condition.


Uterine fibroma is treated by a gynecologist.
