Managing Fibroids Without Hysterectomy


Dr. Stanley West believes that with earlier diagnosis and with the use of less drastic treatments, it should be possible to avoid hysterectomies in most cases. Joyce and Julie speak with Dr. West about the fibroids that occur in the general population, as well as those that occur because of a genetic condition, Hereditary Leiomyomatosis and Renal Cell Cancer, HLRCC. Julie is co-chair of the HLRCC Family Alliance.
