Abstract

Uterine fibroids are commonest benign tumor of the uterus. Histologically this tumor is composed of smooth muscle and fibrous connective tissue, so named as uterine leiomyoma, myoma or fibroma. The cause for some of the most common gynecological problems among women presenting to gynecology emergency and outpatient departments. They are often asymptomatic but they can cause a multitude of symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, a feeling of pelvic pressure, urinary incontinence or retention, or pain. Uterine fibroids are a major cause of morbidity in women of a reproductive age (and sometimes even after menopause). There are several factors that are attributed to underlie the development and incidence of these common tumors, but this further corroborates their relatively unknown etiology. The most likely presentation of fibroids is by their effect on the woman’s menstrual cycle and pelvic pressure symptom.
