Uterine myomas occur in approximately one third of women of reproductive age They are considered the primary cause of infertility in 1-3% of cases; however, this is approximately in 5-10% of young women with feritility problems depending on myomas. Although the malignant transformation of myomas is extremely rare, they are associated with significant morbidity, and are the most common indication for hysterectomy. Worldwide, they represent a major public and personal health concern. Uterine myomas are a phenotype of various genetic diseases associated with a variety of different types, progressions and outcomes in different ethnic groups Recent research on the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of myomas based on cellular and molecular biology is enabling us to better understand this issue, yet a lot of further work is required. This Special Issue titled “Obstetrics and Gynecology and Women's Health” is devoted to myomas, aiming to describe an overview of new aspects of treatment options for conservative medical treatment options which preserve the uterus in the face of symptomatic myomas and surgical therapy modalities.
