Fibroid locations

Different types of uterine fibroids and their locations

Intramural fibroids grow within the muscular uterine wall. Submucosal fibroids bulge into the uterine cavity. Subserosal fibroids project to the outside of the uterus. Some subserosal or submucosal fibroids may be pedunculated — hanging from a stalk inside or outside the uterus.
