NASSAU, BAHAMAS – This month is recognized as Fibroids Awareness Month, a time to share information as well as support and encourage the thousands of women that live with fibroids. In fact, interventional radiologist and medical director at Family Medicine Center, Dr. Mikhail Higgins, describes it as an epidemic, noting that some 50 to 70 percent of women in the region are affected by fibroids at some point in their lives.

Dr. Higgins says he moved back home a few years ago because he recognized a need for his skill. Dr. Higgins specializes in the non-surgical and non-invasive treatment of fibroids. He says he recognized that some women suffered in silence because they were reluctant to have surgery or decided to live with the pain.

He always wants to debunk the myth that fibroids are cancerous or can lead to cancer.

Dr. Higgins is encouraging more women to come forward if they are experiencing any abnormal symptoms that could be associated with fibroids. He says it’s not too late to achieve results.
