the Many Types of Fibroids
Subserosal fibroids typically develop on the outer uterine wall. This type of fibroid can continue to grow outward, increasing in size. The growth of a subserosal fibroid will put additional pressure on surrounding organs. Therefore, symptoms of subserosal fibroid tumors usually do not include abnormal or excessive menstrual bleeding or interfere with a woman’s typical menstrual flow. These fibroids instead cause pelvic pain and pressure. Depending on the severity and the location of fibroids, other complications can accompany this pain and pressure.
