Our expert says:
Fibroids are dependent on hormones and not caused by anything one does. They are very common over the age of 40 years. About 50% of women have fibroids of some size. There is nothing to be ashamed of and you should certainly not feel that you have failed as a woman. The chances of cancer are very low. Unfortunately, as on gets older the chances of illnesses and operations increases.
