FIBROID TUMORS ARE BENIGN TUMORS ON THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE. THEY APPEAR AS WARTS ON THE SKIN WITH A SIZE OF JUST A FEW MILLIMETERS. THEY USUALLY HAVE THE SAME COLOR AS THE SKIN, BUT THEY CAN BE PIGMENTED TOO. FIBROID TUMORS ARE NOT CANCEROUS, BUT ARE A PROBLEM FROM AN AESTHETIC POINT OF VIEW.
Fibroid tumors occur mostly in middle-aged people on the areas of the neck, armpits, abdomen, under the breasts, eyelids and everywhere on the skin. Everyone has at least one fibroma on the skin, so it’s not a rare condition.
They can also be damaged and cause inflammation, growth, bleeding, etc. Their numbers increase with age. No cause for their formation of fibroid tumors is still known, but genetics and obesity certainly play a role. They can vary in numbers – from a few to several hundred.
