Uterine fibroids are said to affect 70%-80% of all women by the time they are 50, majority of that percentage is women of color, specifically Black women. Last Thursday, USA Fibroids Centers held a dinner at Empire Steak House to spread awareness about chronic disease. Host of the night, and advocate for the cause, Real Housewives of Atlanta star and author, Cynthia Bailey, spoke to The Knockturnal about her own struggles with Fibroids. “It means a lot for me to be an advocate, because I suffered from fibroids for many many years.” Bailey says ,“Uterine fibroid embolization pretty much changed my life and saved my life, I was definitely suffering in silence and it was spiritually and emotionally and physically killing me”. She says education about her options with fibroids lead to relief. “I would say to [women] educate themselves, to explore all of their options. A lot of women don’t know their choices and options when it comes to fibroids…you have so many choices.”
Uterine Fibroids are the most common type of Fibroid tumor, affecting women near the age of menopause the most. Fibroids can cause pelvic pain, bleeding between periods, frequent urination, low back pain, and difficulty getting pregnant. Dr. Yan, CEO of USA Fibroid Centers and cardiac surgeon, partnered with The Fibroid Fighters, an organization raising awareness about the risks of the disease. Dr. Yan spoke with The Knockturnal about the event and the options women have if they’re diagnosed with fibroids. “Majority of women of color lose their lives to fibroid disease…suffering physically, emotionally, mentally and socially” Yan says. “Education is the key to solve this”
