Uterus

Clinical examination of uterus and pelvis

Smooth muscles can hypertrophy due to overuse or growth and this occurs in pregnancy on the uterus.

Smooth muscle can become neoplastically transformed. It may lead to leiomyoma (benign) or leiomyosarcoma (malignant). A common benign smooth muscle tumor is leiomyoma of the uterus (fibroid).
