I’m a Black woman in my 30’s, so there’s a greater chance that I have fibroids.
“Twenty to 40 percent of women age 35 and older have uterine fibroids of a significant size while African-American women are at a higher risk, as many as 50 percent have fibroids of a significant size,” according to Sciencedaily.com.
Fibroids are more common in African-American women, tend to grow larger in size in Black women and occur at an earlier age in us than in women of other racial groups. The reasons why are simply unknown.
