Fibroids impact up to 80% of women by the age of 50. However, this experience isn’t linear across race. Studies show that women of colour not only face a higher likelihood of developing fibroids, but also encounter the impact at a younger age with more severe symptoms. These disparities stem from biological factors and have been mismanaged with the misconception that invasive surgery is the sole solution. Uterine Fibroid Embolisation (UFE) offers a permanent treatment for fibroid pain and symptoms, and is actually conducted via a needle prick in the wrist.
