The cause for some of the most common gynecological problems among women presenting to gynecology emergency and outpatient departments. They are often asymptomatic but they can cause a multitude of symptoms such as abnormal uterine bleeding, a feeling of pelvic pressure, urinary incontinence or retention, or pain. Uterine fibroids are a major cause of morbidity in women of a reproductive age (and sometimes even after menopause). There are several factors that are attributed to underlie the development and incidence of these common tumors, but this further corroborates their relatively unknown etiology.
