There are a growing number of effective ways to treat fibroids. Treating your fibroids is likely to relieve your symptoms. Since most fibroids stop growing or may even shrink as you approach menopause, the healthcare provider may simply suggest monitoring your symptoms carefully to ensure that there are no significant changes or developments and that the fibroids are not growing. Women whose fibroids are large or are causing significant symptoms, treatment may be necessary.
Treatment plans for patients will be determined by their care team based on age, medical history, stage of fibroids and personal preferences.
