The uterine fibroid checklist
A woman diagnosed with uterine fibroids has many options for treatment; but unfortunately, many women are not aware of them. The lack of awareness of uterine fibroids, despite the high prevalence of the disorder, and the fact that a majority of women have never even heard of UFE, are alarming. Every woman’s symptoms are different, as are the factors in her life that will be impacted. Ensuring that women have the complete information they need to make the right decision about treatment is vital to providing the best care possible. That includes educating women about treatments beyond hysterectomy or other surgical options. Women deserve to know about UFE and it is the job of clinicians to help inform them.
