Uterine fibroids are benign (non-cancerous) tumours of the uterus. They are clinically apparent in up to 25%  of women and, with newer imaging techniques, the true clinical prevalence may be higher (up to 77%  ). Although most do not cause symptoms, uterine fibroids can cause severe problems for some women who have the condition.
