Lake Health and Wellbeing Launches a Fibroids Survey

Despite fibroids being very common in women it is rarely spoken about, as it can be a sensitive issue, and it receives little mainstream attention. The result of this is that many women with fibroids may not be receiving the support and information that they need to manage their condition.  Lake Health and Wellbeing is on a mission to change this and is inviting women living in St Kitts and Nevis.

Fibroids are non-cancerous growths that develop in or around a women’s womb. Fibroids are more common in black women with an estimated 80% of black women being affected. It has also been found that black women are more likely to have more severe symptoms, have multiple fibroids and develop fibroids at a younger age than their white counterparts.
