How prevalent are fibroids and what are they?

“Fibroids are smooth muscle tumors which are benign, but they do cause significant symptoms. They grow large. They cause heavy bleeding and pain. This can happen in the 20s and 30s but the 40s is the most common time. Sixty percent of women by their 40s have some form of fibroids, from tiny ones to large ones.”
