About 25 percent of women of child bearing age have fibroids. They are non-cancerous tumors on the uterus.
For most women they don't cause problems --but for some they can cause a variety of symptoms.
Symptoms can include heavy, prolonged periods, an increase in menstrual cramps, pelvic or back pain, painful intercourse, and an abnormally enlarged abdomen.
Doctor O'Brien says those are the women who could benefit from uterine fibroid embolization.
