They can grow in various parts of your uterus. A small fibroid in the cavity of the uterus can cause very heavy periods. Fibroids and be in the lining, the muscle, or pedunculated - just hanging off the end.

In brief: Anywhere

They can grow on the surface, inside the cavity, and the uterine wall.
They can vary widely in size. Rarely, they can grow outside the uterus as well.
