The sex steroid hormones play an important role in myoma maintenance and growth as evidenced by clinical, molecular, biological, and pharmacological models. It is hoped that the next phase of research will elucidate better the mechanisms through which these hormones modulate myoma growth and how they interact with the as yet unidentified other factors that play a role in myoma development and growth.
