Fibroids are the benign tumors of the genital tract. They are usually asymptomatic and relatively quite common. The management of fibroids which are asymptomatic is periodic examination for rapid growth in size. Once you reach menopause, fibroids can shrink. Fibroids that are up to 5cm in size can also be treated by progesterone containing IUD that is Mirena.
Surgery may be required for some Fibroids
Symptomatic fibroids will need surgery. However, the type of surgery will depend upon further child bearing. If the child bearing is complete, hysterectomy is the best treatment for symptomatic fibroids, however, before the child bearing is complete, myomectomy may be considered dependent upon size, location and number of fibroids.
