Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Yes there is medical treatment of fibroids. Gnrh agonists drugs are used to shrink the tumor( though associated with few side effects). Moreover treatment is given when there are symptoms. Discuss with your gynecologist about the treatment options. Take care.
medical treatment is to relieve or reduce symptoms.no definitive medical therapy is currently available for leiomyomata,butGnRH agonist treatment of uterine fibroids for 3 months usually will achieve maximal shrinkage of the myomatous uterus to approximately 35–50% of its volume and amenorrhea with resulting improvement in hematologic parameters.but its a temporary method. uterus again come to its original volume again after discontinuation of therapy. some sideeffects of the medical therapy is also there. better meet a gynecologist and take treatment.
