Fibroids are benign growths of the muscle that makes up the womb. They are very common and may be present in up to 40% of women in the UK. In at least half of these women fibroids will not cause any symptoms and do not require treatment.
It is still not known what causes fibroids to form but it is likely to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors.
