I would assume they are the same or at least treated the same. Fibroids are non cancerous solid masses that can grow or shrink with hormones.
Don't let fibroids put you off having more. They will do extra scans and more precautions. I think the statistics of people having fibroids is something like 30% in pregnancy. Some grow during pregnancy, some don't. So very common. And I read somewhere that in our lifetime about 80% of us girls will have at least one uterine fibroid. Most go undiagnosed they are that common. I'm pretty sure the ones that grow on stalks are the easiest to remove and you can get pregnant pretty much straight away and have a natural birth.

That was an interesting article, my symptoms are pretty much spot on for a fibroid, but they think polyp. I think I should stop googling and just wait and see what doc says next week.
