What treatments are available for uterine fibroids?

Some fibroids need to be removed to avoid other health problems, according to the U.S. Department of Department of Health and Human ServicesOff Site Icon (HHS).

Treatments for fibroids, according to the HHS, include:

  • Endometrial ablation
  • Hysterectomy
  • Medication
  • MRI-guided ultrasound surgery
  • Myomectomy
  • Myolysis
  • Uterine fibroid embolization

In the past, hysterectomy was the most common solution to take care of uterine fibroids, according to the HHS. While it is the only way to completely cure uterine fibroids and ensure they don’t return, the other less invasive treatments have proven to be an effective solution for many women.

Talk to your physician for more information treatment options for uterine fibroids.
