Black Women and Fibroids the Silent Epidemic That’s Screaming in Our Community

Fibroids are more common in African-American women than in women of other racial groups. One study showed that fibroids are three times more common in African-American women than in Caucasian women.

The body image discussion needs to be steered toward changing fundamental attitudes. As long as people are identified by the size of their bodies, this issue will never go away.
