Uterine fibroids also known as leiomyoma (medical term) are muscular tumours that grow in the wall of the uterus. In most cases fibroids are generally non-cancerous (benign). These fibroids can grow as a single tumour, or there can be many of them found in the uterus. Most women who have fibroids do not display symptoms, however for those who have symptoms often find fibroids very difficult to live with. Treatment for fibroids varies depending on the symptoms.

This report provides the current prevalence of uterine fibroids across 27 Major Markets (USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Brazil, Japan, China, South Korea, Turkey, Mexico, Denmark, Argentina, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland, The Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Switzerland, Austria ) split by gender and 5-year age cohort. Along with the current prevalence, the report also contains a disease overview of the risk factors, disease diagnosis and prognosis along with specific variations by geography and ethnicity.

Providing a value-added level of insight from the analysis team at Black Swan, several of the main symptoms and co-morbidities of have been quantified and presented alongside the overall prevalence. These sub-populations within the main disease are also included at a country level across the 10-year forecast snapshot.

Main symptoms and co-morbidities for the disease include:

  • Heavy bleeding (severe enough to cause anaemia)
  • Enlargement of lower abdomen
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain during sex
  • Endometriosis
  • fatigue
  • Anaemia

This report is built using data and information sourced from the proprietary Epiomic patient segmentation database. To generate accurate patient population estimates, the Epiomic database utilises a combination of several world class sources that deliver the most up to date information from patient registries, clinical trials, and epidemiology studies. All the sources used to generate the data and analysis have been identified in the report.
