In brief: Uterus. Gut, bladder

Fibroids are benign muscular tumors within the female uterus.
Most common symptoms are pain and abnormal vaginal bleeding. If large enough, they could impact on adjacent organs, specifically the colon (large intestine) causing bowel symptoms, or urinary bladder, causing urinary symptoms, or ovaries. The problem can be anything from causing no symptoms at all to requiring surgical procedures.

In brief: Uterine Growths

Fibroids are benign "growths" on the uterus.
They can occur anywhere on the uterus and other organs that are affected is generally due to displacement of those organs and the fibroids just taking up space. Mostly more of a "pushing up" of the viscera by the fibroids. Drj.
