Dr. Komal Vijaywargiya | Dr. Apoorva Choudhary | Dr. Aayushi Ruia

Abstract: Uterine fibroids, which are also called uterine leiomyomas, are non - cancerous tumors that arise in the smooth muscle of the wall of the uterus, cervix or ovary. Fibroids are the most common type of tumor that develop in the female reproductive system. Roughly 40 percent of women over the age of 40 develop a uterine fibroid, according to an article published in the October 2000 issue of Environmental Health Perspectives. Red or carneous degeneration is one of four main types of degeneration that can involve a uterine leiomyoma. While it is an uncommon type of degeneration, it is thought to be the most common form of degeneration of a leiomyoma during pregnancy.
