This study is performed to evaluate the factors associated with the recurrence of myoma after Myomectomy. Identifying the factors of myoma recurrence will assist the patient and her gynecologist in deciding the most appropriate method of treatment according to her specific social, medical and emotional needs. Multiple logistic regression is used to determine the factors affecting the recurrence. 'Age of Surgery', 'Tumor Size', 'Pelvic Pain' and the interaction between the 'Age of Surgery' and 'Tumor Size' are significant in the final model. Kaplan-Meier method is used to calculate the cumulative recurrence rate. The 5 year cumulative recurrence rate is 24.32% and the 10 year cumulative recurrence rate is 32.57%.
