A uterine fibroid is a benign tumour of the womb, found in about 25% of women. It is fibrous and muscular, and may develop in the muscular wall of the womb (uterus). Fibroids can often cause pain and excessive menstrual bleeding. Myomectomy is the surgical removal of the fibroids and is usually performed via hysteroscopy or laparoscopy. However, hysterectomy is the most commonly performed operation.
