 Uterine Fibroids

Uterine fibroids are benign (not cancerous) growths that occur in about 25-50% of all women.  Many women who have fibroids do not know that they have them because they don’t always cause symptoms.

Possible treatment options include myomectomy (surgical removal of the individual fibroid), uterine artery embolization, hysteroscopy and hysterectomy.  Sometimes, medicines such as Depo Lupron can be given to temporarily stop heavy bleeding.
