Fibroid ( Uterine fibroid) is one of the most common health challenges affecting women of child bearing age.
It is really a big problem for women.
Presently, medically there is no cure for fibroid and it cannot be prevented.
Various studies have shown that it is more common in blacks than other race.

Symptoms depending on the location, size and number of tumors.

Some women do not have any symptoms.
Medically, there are different methods of getting rid of it such as
Uterine artery embolization (UAE) is a procedure to treat fibroids without surgery. During the procedure, the blood supply to the fibroids is cut off. This typically causes the fibroids to shrink.
With these methods, experience have shown that fibroid tends to grow back or if they could not be completely removed, they may continue to grow.
