Maybe: There are four types of fibroid uterine locations 1) within the wall. 2) under the lining of the uterus(endometrium) 3) Just under the outside uterine surface 4) on a stalk outside of the uterus itself (pedunculated) . You need a GYN MD and ultrasound to distinguish which location type you have as it has an impact on future conception possibilities.
