Hi,

The fibroids size are bit on the higher side. If it is symptomatic then it really needs surgery. If asymptomatic it needs regular follow up every 3 months since it has the tendency to grow and also less chances for cancer. If you are nearing menopause then after that the fibroid size will shrink to some extent and reduce the pressure symptoms. But if there are disturbances in passing urine or if you have irregular bleeding then it needs immediate surgical intervention.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana Rajesh Babu, OB & GYN Specialist
