Caption: Uterine fibroid in a septated uterus. Coloured 3-D ultrasound scan of a fibroid (indicated by arrows) growing above a sepated uterus (Y-shaped structure). A fibroid is a benign tumour of fibrous and smooth muscle tissue. Most fibroids do not require treatment, but some can cause bleeding, pain and other disorders. A septated uterus forms during embryonic development, when the two ducts that are precursors to the uterus fail to fuse properly. This leaves a strip of tissue along the middle of the uterus (septum), partitioning it. Ultrasound scanning uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of an internal structure.
