Uterine fibroids are benign growths on the wall of the uterus. They represent the most common gynecological non-cancerous tumors in women. It is estimated that 80% of women will have uterine fibroids at some point in their reproductive years. Many are symptom free and unaware, but for some women, fibroids can cause heavy bleeding, irregular periods, abdominal bloating and back pain (even though these symptoms are often wrongfully normalized). Fibroids can even grow large and press on vital organs like the bladder or bowel, eventually leading to digestive or kidney problems. The cause is not well understood, however, the theory is that abnormal muscle cells in the uterus are affected by estrogen and other factors in a way that drives tumor growth.
