Fibroids can appear in different areas of the muscular layer of the uterus, with those that invade the uterine cavity making conception more difficult. Depending on where they grow, we distinguish the following types:
- towards the outside of the uterus.
- remains in the thickness of the myometrium.
- grows into the uterine cavity.
Subserosal and submucosal fibroids can also be pediculated, which means that they are only attached to the uterus by a stem called pedicle.
