One or more leiomyomas will be detected by abdominal or pelvic imaging by age 50 years in 70% of white women and more than 80% of African American women. Most leiomyomas are asymptomatic, but 25% to 30% of affected women will experience pelvic pain, heavy or prolonged menstrual bleeding, bulk symptoms (ie, pelvic pressure or genitourinary symptoms), and/or reproductive dysfunction.
