Understanding Uterine Fibroids -- Diagnosis and Treatment

Home Remedies

When fibroids grow on the outside of the uterus, you may become aware of a mass on your abdomen. Lying down and placing a hot pack or hot water bottle on your lower abdomen may lessen pain. Apply the hot packs several times a day. NSAIDs like Advil and Motrin can also ease pain.
