Uterine Fibroid Treatment Options:
 
 

Appropriate treatment depends on the size and location of the fibroids, as well as the severity of symptoms. If a woman is not experiencing symptoms, her doctor will most likely suggest "watchful waiting" — checking the fibroid at annual gynecologic examinations and monitoring for symptoms.

If symptoms develop, there are a number of treatment options:
  Uterine fibroid embolization, a non-surgical treatment that causes the fibroid to shrink
  Drug therapy, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), birth-control pills and hormone therapy
  Surgical treatments, including myomectomy (surgical removal of the fibroids) and hysterectomy (surgical removal of the uterus)
