When females hear the word fibroids, other concepts such as cancer, pain, barren and agony comes to mind. For generations black women have been suffering more from this disease than any other women, in any other racial group. It has been surmised that one in four women have fibroids and generally it is found in women over thirty years of age. Though they normally are not problematic or large enough to be of concern, there are thousands who form a small percentage of those who suffer horribly from these unwanted growths found in the womb or uterus.
One of the few comforts women can take from having fibroids is to know that they are non-cancerous. In the medical field they are often referred to as uterine myomas, fibromyomas or leiomyomas. On the flip side, these benign growths can range in size; from the size of tiny pebbles, to being large enough for people to think that you are having a full term pregnancy.
Fibroids can be found in every cavity or area of the womb that will allow them to thrive. They are further classified according to where they are located. Intramural fibroids grow within the muscle tissue of the womb and are one of the most common places for fibroids to form. Subserous fibroids grow from the outside wall of the womb into the pelvis. Submucous fibroids grow from the inner wall into the middle of the womb and pedunculated fibroids grow from the outside wall of the womb and are attached to it by a narrow stalk.
