Uterus tumour. Coloured computed tomography (CT) scan of the abdomen of a woman with a fibroid (round, upper centre) in her uterus. A fibroid is a fibrous benign tumour originating from muscular tissue (leimyoma). Most do not require treatment, but some can cause bleeding, pain and other disorders. Large fibroids may need to be surgically removed.
