Uterine Fibroid is a non-cancerous, benign growth that develops in or just outside the uterus. Uterine fibroid develops from normal uterus muscle cells that start growing abnormally. As the cells grow big in size, they form a tumor. Fibroid could be single or multiple in numbers and size. Their size varies from a small peanut size to a big grape size.
