Where Fibroids Grow

Fibroids can grow in different parts of the uterus:

  • Under the outer surface of the uterus (subserosal fibroids)

  • In the wall of the uterus (intramural fibroid)

  • Under the lining of the uterus (submucosal fibroid)

Some fibroids grow on a stalk. They are called pedunculated fibroids.
