  • Family History: As mentioned above, women whose mothers and sisters have fibroids are more at risk than those who don't have a similar history.
  • Race: Africo-American women are more at risk than Caucasians.
  • Other Factors: Factors like getting the first menstruation at an early age, increased consumption of red meat and low consumption of fruits and vegetables probably seem to increase the risk of developing Uterine Fibroids.
