May Thurner syndrome does not usually cause symptoms so it is difficult to know how many people even have it. It has been estimated that up to around 3% of people might have the condition. We are also not entirely sure of how or why it happens, but it has been linked with some factors.

People that develop May Thurner syndrome are usually between the ages of 20 and 40. Women are also twice as likely to develop the condition than men are. While it will usually cause no symptoms at all, it will develop into something more serious in some cases.
