What is a Uterine Myoma?

Reading time: 1 min

Uterine myoma or uterine fibroids are fibroids that arise in the muscular tissue of the uterus and are the most common benign tumor in women of reproductive age.

A higher incidence is observed in women around the age of 40. They are clinically evident in 25-50% of women, but when careful pathological studies of the uterus are performed, their frequency can reach 80% of women between the ages of 40-60 years.

It must be remembered that the vast majority of fibroids are asymptomatic and require no treatment; they are diagnosed as an incidental finding in a routine gynaecological check-up.
