Gynecologists caution that in spite of fibroids being a common problem women should not take it lightly. Past President Delhi Gynae Endoscopy Society Padmashri Dr. Malvika Sabharwal said fibroids arise from the musculature in the uterus, they are hormone-dependent and get stimulated to increase in size.
