Thanks for writing us with your health concern.
If the fibroid is symptomatic, it needs treatment.
If possible please upload the scan report at -
The location and type of fibroid also matters.
First, medical management with progesterone maybe tried, if that fails, you can go for surgical removal.
Take care.
