This problem is seen in women. Sometimes some non-cancerous growths (benign tumors), made up of fibrous tissue and smooth muscle, develop around or inside the uterus. These growths are called fibroids and are also known as leiomyomas or uterine myomas.
As you can see in the following image, fibroids can develop at different locations inside and around the uterus including:
The exact reason for fibroid development is not known but it is believed that this condition is linked to a female reproductive hormone called Oestrogen. Oestrogen is produced by the female reproductive organs (Ovaries). It is seen that fibroids develop in women of ages 16-50 when estrogen productions are at their highest levels. It is also observed that fibroids are more common in over-weighed women because the increase in weight results in more production of estrogen.
