    Q. Are overweight people at higher risk of developing fibroids?
    • Yes. Obesity and fibroids are linked to each other. Overweight individuals have higher chances of being diagnosed with the presence of fibroids. Also, the presence of fibroids make the patients gain weight over the time. In obese individuals, the estrogen hormonal levels are high. High levels of estrogen hormones boost the risk of growth of fibroids in the respective women.
