African American Women at Higher Risk of Uterine Fibroids


Studies show African American women are up to three times more likely to develop non-cancerous fibroid tumors in the uterus. And Black women often have more numerous fibroids which can interfere with daily bowel and urinary function. But there are treatments that can help reduce the size of the fibroids and help women to live a higher quality of life.
