Fibroid are abnormal growths that form from muscular tissue in the uterus.
Ranging in size, the growths can occur singly or in numbers.
Uterine fibroid are the most common type of non-cancerous tumors that affect women of childbearing age and it is estimated to occur in three out of four women during their lifetime.
Although the exact cause of uterine fibroid is unknown, it’s thought that certain genetic and hormonal factors may play a role in their development.
For instance, the hormones estrogen and progesterone may stimulate the growth of uterine fibroid.
It is believed that fibroid affect about 80% of women although most of them are unaware that they have these tumors because they produce no signs and symptoms of uterine fibroid.
While it is unknown why fibroid develop in the first place, there are a number of risk factors that have been identified.
- One of the risk factors is race.
For unknown reasons, black women have been identified as having a higher risk of developing fibroid than women of other races.
Mathematically, black women are believed to be three times as likely to develop fibroid tumors as white women.
- If you are over weight or obese
Some black women are guilty of this. They look for ways of increasing their weight, believing that the bigger they are the more respect they will command from the society. What they believe is that people will look at them as “cash madam” not knowing that they are actually inviting fibroid and some other ailments into their lives.
If you have history of uterine fibroid in your family, you are likely to get it.
Yes, if you have fibroid there is high probability that your daughter(s) will inherit it.
- Not having babies when you suppose to do so.
That is leaving your womb alone for a long period. Your womb is meant to carry babies, when you did not put it to the use it was meant for, some “foreign” growths start to occupy the space meant for babies.
