Not all fibroids have to be treated as many are asymptomatic. For those that need treatment there are a few possible options available, including:
- Hysteroscopic resection (for intra-cavity fibroids)
- Fibroid embolisation (radiology guided treatment)
- Myomectomy (removal of the fibroids with preservation of the uterus)
- Hysterectomy (removal of the uterus)
The method of treatment is dictated by your symptoms, the size and location of the fibroids, age and desire to preserve fertility. This can all be discussed with your gynaecologist.
