Uterine fibroids are benign growths that develop in the muscular wall of the uterus. While fibroids do not always cause symptoms, their size and location can lead to problems for some women.
University of Maryland interventional radiologist Dr. Howard Richard will discuss several options for treating uterine fibroids, including a minimally-invasive procedure called uterine fibroid embolization.
Do you have a question about uterine fibroids? Send us your question via Twitter @MPTNews #yourhealth. Then watch Direct Connection on September 28, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. to see if we use your question on the show.
