Fibroids affect approximately three out of four American women. Many women dismiss symptoms of fibroids (also known as myomas) including, heavy monthly periods, pain or pressure between the hip bones or back of the legs, a frequent need to urinate, constipation and bloating and an enlarged abdomen. Fibroid related symptoms cause women to lose an estimated 2-4 million days of productivity a year. African-American women, and those of any race with a family history, are more likely to develop fibroids than other women. It’s estimated that between 50% and 80% of African-American women will develop fibroids. Fibroids are the #1 reason for hysterectomy in this country— up to 75% of hysterectomies done are for this non-cancerous condition that can be treated without surgery!

Congressman David Scott's Annual Health Fair Draws Hundreds!!!

The fibroid team headed south to Jonesboro for Congressman David Scott's Annual Health Fair at Mundy's Mill High School on Fayetteville Road. The health fair attracted hundreds of community residents and dozens of vendors from all over Metro Atlanta. The fibroids team was a popular attraction as usual. It was incredible to see the looks on women's faces when they heard the news their fibroids could be treated non-surgically with  UFE, Uterine Fibroid Embolization.

Kiss 104.1's Charles Mitchell also entertained the crowd!!!
