Fibroids are a common uterine tumor affecting 20 to 25% women. Fibroid develops from benign transformation of a single smooth muscle cell. The growth of Myoma is dependent on many factors. Increased estrogen stimulation alone or together with growth hormone or human placental lactogen appears to be the major growth regulator of Fibroid.
