Hello welcome to HCM
Thanks for the query.
You have not mentioned about your age and the size of the fibroid and sonography findings.
Most fibroids do not require treatment unless they are causing symptoms. After Menopause most of the fibroids shrink and unusual to cause problems later.
Symptomatic fibroids can be treated by
1) Medication to shrink the tumour like Danazol, aromatase inhibitors ,etc
2)Ultasound and MRI guided radiofrequency ablation.
3)Myomectomy laproscopic or Hysteroscopic.
4)Uterine artery embolisation.
Ultasound and MRI guided radiofrequency ablation is a potential option for women who have fibroids, have completed child-bearing and want to avoid a hysterectomy.
Hysterectomy was the classical method of treating fibroids. Although it is now recommended only as last option.
