Understanding UFE

What are Uterine Fibroids?

Uterine fibroids are smooth, muscular tumors that form in the uterus. These growths appear during women’s childbearing years, and are so common that 30% of all women develop them by age 35, and as many as 70% to 80% of women develop them by age 50. Fortunately, these fibroids are non-cancerous, and do not increase a woman’s chances of developing uterine cancer.
