Join Dr. Courtney M. Shelton, MD for The CheckUp on WCLK Saturday morning at 8:30am for an important discussion about women's health. Dr. Shelton is joined by Dr. John C. Lipton, MD, FSIR  with the Atlanta Fibroid Center. July is Fibroid Awareness Month. Fibroids are non-malignant tumors that exist within or on the uterus. Eighty percent of all women will develop fibroids by age fifty. That number balloons up to nearly 90 percent for African-American women, who are three times as likely to be negatively affected by them.
