Many women have uterine fibroids sometime during their lives. But most of women don’t know they have uterine fibroids because they often cause no symptoms.
Many women having fibroids don’t have any symptoms. Symptoms can be influenced by the location, size, and number of fibroids. The most common symptoms no uterine fibroids include heavy menstrual bleeding, menstrual bleeding lasting more than a week, frequent urination, backaches, and leg pains.

Doctors believe that uterine fibroids develop from a stem cell in the smooth muscular tissue of the uterus. A single cell divides repeatedly, eventually creating a firm, rubbery mass distinct from nearby tissue.
