Both fibroids and cysts are common in females, especially in the period before menopause. Fibroids are usually noncancerous tumours that form in the muscular wall of the uterus. Ovarian cysts are sacs filled with fluid and are found in or over the ovary. These might be very common in women, but never try to self-diagnose and start treatment on your own. Consult the best gynaecologist for proper diagnosis and a medical plan which is fit for you.
