Knowing the types of fibroids and the associated symptoms of uterine fibroids is important in deciding the type of fibroid treatment that will be the best option for you and your lifestyle. Among the various types of fibroid tumors, including submucosal, intramural and subserosal fibroids, are pedunculated fibroid tumors.
Pedunculated uterine fibroids occur when a fibroid tumor grows on a stalk, resulting in pedunculated submucosal fibroids or pedunculated subserosal fibroids. These fibroids can grow into the uterus and also tend to grow on the outside of the uterine wall. Symptoms associated with pedunculated fibroid tumors include pain and pressure as the fibroids can sometimes twist on their stalk.
Left untreated, fibroid tumors and their associated symptoms can cause health risks and complications in the future. If you think that you have any of the above or other symptoms of fibroids, contact your primary care provider or OB/Gyn as soon as possible.
