If your health professional suspects that you have a uterine fibroid problem, certain tests will be ordered to confirm the diagnosis.
Uterine fibroid symptoms can develop slowly over several years or rapidly over several months. Most women with uterine fibroids have mild symptoms or none at all and never need treatment. For some women, uterine fibroid symptoms become a problem.
It is common for fibroids to grow back after treatment. The only treatment that absolutely prevents regrowth of fibroids is removal of the entire uterus, called hysterectomy.
Uterine fibroid embolization (UFE) is a recent addition to the list of uterine fibroid treatment options. It is a nonsurgical alternative to hysterectomy or myomectomy.
