Medicines can be used to help with symptoms or, as with some hormone treatments, temporarily shrink the fibroids.
These are sometimes used prior to surgery.
Fibroid or uterine artery embolisation is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anaesthetic backed by a number of randomized controlled trials and recommended by the national institute for clinical excellence NICE.
Laparoscopic Myomectomy is a surgical procedure performed under a general anesthetic. Small tubes or ports ore placed through the skin into the abdomen and the surgeon can then directly visualize the uterus and gently shell out the fibroid and remove it.
Laparoscopic Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure performed under a general anesthetic. The uterus is directly visualized and dissected away from the surrounding tissues. The whole uterus with the fibroids is then removed.

There's no single best approach to uterine fibroid treatment - many treatment options exist. Some women with fibroids experience only mild signs and symptoms which they can live with, therefore ‘watchful waiting’ is acceptable to them.
However, when symptoms start to interfere with day-to-day life, a range of options exist, including medication, minimally invasive intervention such as Embolisation, and traditional surgical procedures.
