Types of Fibroids

There are four major types of fibroids. Intramurals are located in the wall of the uterus and are the most common. Subserosal are located outside of the uterus wall. Submucosal are located in the muscle of the wall of the uterus. Cervical tumors are located at the top of the womb (cervix).
