What’s the best treatment for uterine fibroids? Payal Agrawal, Pune
There are many factors to consider for the treatment of fibroids. Management depends on the: 1. Size of the fibroid. 2. Location of the fibroid. 3. Whether or not causing symptoms or any problems and if so how severe. 4. Whether accompanied with any other pathology. 5. Whether there is heavy bleeding or prolonged bleeding during periods. The treatment can defer from conservative management and tracking the growth of the fibroid to surgery. There are different modes of surgery for different fibroids. If the fibroid is large, then surgery is the choice. If you provide more accurate details, then I could advise you more specifically.
