Uterine Fibroids and Black Women

Black women are three times more likely to have uterine fibroids than white women, says a new study. Researchers also found that African-American women were more likely to develop these noncancerous growths at an earlier age, according to Science World Report. Fibroids can cause heavy bleeding, painful periods, pain during sex and fertility problems.
