There are many different types of fibroid tumors . Understanding their differences, how they grow and how they develop can help you decide which fibroid tumor treatment is best for you and your situation. Learning more about the fibroid types will also help in identifying the signs and symptoms of uterine fibroids that you may be experiencing.
Subserosal fibroids typically develop in the outer portion of the uterus on the outer uterine wall. This type of fibroid tumor will continue to grow outward increasing in size. The growth of a subserosal fibroid tumor will put additional pressure on the surrounding organs. Therefore, symptoms of subserosal fibroid tumors don't usually include any abnormal or excessive menstrual bleeding or interference with a women's typical menstrual flow. These fibroid tumors instead cause pelvic pain and pressure. Depending on the severity and the location of the fibroids other complications can accompany this pain and pressure.
If you are experiencing any of the symptoms of fibroids, contact your primary care physician or OB/Gyn as soon as possible in order to rule out any other possible causes for the symptoms you may be experiencing.
