Summary "Uterine fibroids are a major cause of morbidity in women. Fibroids have variable clinical presentations, depending on size and location. These include pelvic pain (20 to 40% of patients), bleeding (30% of patients), and anemia. Fibroids are the leading cause of hysterectomy in the United States. Bleeding from fibroids generally presents as abnormal uterine bleeding (AUB) and often prolonged or heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB). Fibroids that bleed are more frequently submucosal or extend into the endometrial cavity. Other problems 8 related to fibroids include problems with implantation, preterm labor, recurrent loss of pregnancy, obstruction of labor and urinary incontinence. Medical costs for patients with fibroids in the United States were estimated as $4.1 to $9.4 billion in 2010 US dollars"-- Provided by publisher
