What Really is Fibroid?

It has been discovered that between 20% and 75% of women  will encounter the symptom of fibroid during their life.  Some women however, understand the fibroid symptom but they do not know how it come about….

  Fibroids in summary are benign smooth muscle tumors that have fiberous connections and grow in the walls of the uterus.  Fibroid can range in size from as small as a microscopic seed to as large as the size of a basketball.  The larger the fibroid growth the more adverse effect it has on the woman.
