Controversial.: About 1 in 1000 fibroids can become cancerous. It is a matter of debate whether these fibroids turn cancerous or were cancerous all along.

Depends what kind: It depends what kind and how bad it is. Venous(vein) insufficiency leads to varicose veins and ulcers in the legs. Treatment involves closing the abnormal veins. Arterial(artery) insufficiency leads to inability to walk and sometimes gangrene or limb loss. Treatment involves exercise, surgery, or angioplasty/stenting, with medication, to open damaged arteries or create new pathways(bypass).
