Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids, also known as leiomyomas, are benign tumors of the uterus which can grow and cause enlargement of the uterus. The enlarged uterus and fibroids can cause symptoms such as abnormal bleeding, pelvic pain, discomfort, and fullness, frequent urination, and constipation. Very rarely, these tumors can transform into a form of cancer known as leiomyosarcoma.
