Uterine Fibroids

Prof. Simone Ferrero is the Editor of a recent book published on uterine myomas. Uterine myomas are the most common form of benign uterine tumors, occurring in 50–60% of women. Clinically, they are mostly asymptomatic, often incidentally found on pelvic examination or by routine gynecological ultrasonographic evaluation; otherwise, in 30–40% of cases, they cause a large variety of symptoms, depending on their location and size. Currently, the therapeutic options for myomas are medical, radiological, and surgical. The aim of this book is to summarize the evidence regarding epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, diagnosis and management of uterine myomas.
