Thanks for posting your query.
I have gone through her USG report.
Fibroids grow in response to stimulation by the hormone estrogen, produced naturally in the body & these are benign tumour.
If the person does not have symptoms such as vaginal bleeding or pelvic pain, and if the fibroid is not growing rapidly, no treatment may be needed.
So consult your gynaecologist at interval of six months for pelvic examination & ultrasound scan.
If growth remains static, no treatment needed; otherwise medical treatment like gonadotropin releasing hormone will be started.
I hope your query has been answered. I Will be available for your further queries.
