Fibroid uterus causes

It is not clear what causes fibroids.

  • The female hormones estrogen and progesterone appear to be involved in their growth.

  • Hormonal medications that contain estrogen, such as birth control pills, may cause fibroids to grow.

  • Family history of fibroids or cancer

Fibroid uterus types

The type of fibroid a woman develops depends on its location in or on the uterus.

  • Intramural fibroids: Intramural fibroids are the most common type of fibroid. These types appear within the muscular wall of the uterus.

  • Subserosal fibroids: Subserosal fibroids form on the outside of your uterus, which is called the serosa.

  • Submucosal fibroids: These types of tumors develop in the middle muscle layer, or myometrium, of your uterus. Submucosal tumors aren’t as common as the other types.
