Fibroids,also known as myomas or leiomyomas, are noncancerous tumors of the uterus. They are strictly found in and around the uterus, nowhere else in the pelvis. There are several common types based on location: Pedunculated, Subserosal, Submucosal and Intramural. Pedunculated tumors are attached to the uterus with a stalk and free float in the abdomen or the endometrial cavity. They are not within the muscle of the uterus. Subserosal are those tumors just beneath the outer surface of the uterus. Submucosal are tumors deep within the muscular layer of the uterus and often are adjacent to and impinge on the endometrial lining. Finally, Intramural myomas are found deep within any area of the uterine muscle. All can be successfully removed with our surgery.
