In brief: Usually yes

Uterine fibroids are overwhelmingly benign growths that arise from the uterus (there is a very rare possibility of these changing into cancer).
Ultrasound can usually differentiate these from cancer of the ovary or of the uterine cavity. Sometimes MRI is used when there is a question.
