What is Uterine Leiomyoma?

Description of the disease

Uterine leiomyoma is a benign tumor that originates from the smooth muscle tissue of the uterus. It can be single or multiple, small or large, located within the muscular layer of the uterus or beneath the mucous membrane.


  • Submucous leiomyomas
  • Intramural leiomyomas
  • Subserous leiomyomas
  • Intracavitary leiomyomas


  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Painful sensations in the lower abdomen
  • Increased abdominal volume
  • Pain during sexual intercourse


Currently, the exact causes of uterine leiomyoma are not established. However, it is believed that hormonal background, heredity, certain vitamins, and microelements may influence the development of the disease.


To diagnose uterine leiomyoma, ultrasound, MRI, and computer tomography are used.


Treatment of leiomyoma can be conservative or surgical, depending on the size of the tumor, the patient's age, and symptoms.


Prevention of leiomyoma includes regular check-ups with a gynecologist, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and proper nutrition.
