What are Fibroids?
Fibroids are noncancerous growths (benign tumors) of the uterus. They are also known as uterine myomas or leiomyomas. Fibroids can range in size from very small (the size of a pea) to very large (the size of a grapefruit).
They can be located in various areas of the uterus, including the inner wall, outer wall, or within the uterine muscle.
Causes of Fibroids
The exact cause of fibroids is unknown, but possible risk factors include genetics, hormones, and lifestyle. Research suggests that estrogen and progesterone, two hormones that play a role in pregnancy, can stimulate the growth of fibroids.Other risk factors include:
Uterine Fibroid Symptoms
Fibroids can be diagnosed with a pelvic exam, ultrasound, MRI, or CT scan. Your doctor may also order blood work to check your hormone levels.
The doctor may also recommend a hysteroscopy, a procedure in which a thin, lighted tube is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the uterus. This allows your doctor to see inside the uterus and look for fibroids.

Risks of Uterine Fibroids
Treatment of Fibroids
Fibroid treatments depend on the size, location, and symptoms associated with fibroids. Treating uterine fibroids range from medical and lifestyle management to surgery.
Medical management may include hormonal treatments, such as birth control pills or intrauterine devices, to reduce the size of fibroids. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may also be prescribed to reduce pain and heavy bleeding.
In some cases, surgery may be recommended to remove the fibroids. This can be done using either a minimally invasive procedure or open surgery, depending on the size and location of the fibroids.
Other treatments for fibroids include uterine artery embolization, in which a substance is injected into the uterine artery to block the vessels that supply blood to the fibroid.
Ultrasound-guided high-intensity focused ultrasound, which uses sound waves to heat and destroy the fibroid; and microwave ablation, which uses microwaves to destroy the fibroid. These surgeries typically leave the uterus intact.

Uterine fibroid embolization is an effective treatment for symptomatic fibroids that are located within the uterine cavity, but it may not be the best option for fibroids that are located outside of the uterus or for very large fibroids.Your doctor can help you determine the best treatment option for your situation.
The latest treatments for fibroids include various medications, minimally invasive procedures, and surgeries. Medications such as gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonists or antagonists, progestin-releasing intrauterine devices (IUDs), and gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) analogs can help reduce fibroid size and symptoms.
Minimally invasive procedures such as uterine artery embolization (UAE) and magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound ablation (MRgFUS) can help shrink fibroids without the need for surgery.
Surgical options for fibroids include myomectomy, hysterectomy, and laparoscopic radiofrequency ablation (RFA).
A minimally invasive hysterectomy for fibroids is a surgical procedure that removes fibroids from the uterus without making a large incisionThis procedure is done through laparoscopy or robotic-assisted laparoscopy, using tiny instruments and a camera to guide the surgeon. This type of surgery is typically done as an outpatient procedure with a shorter recovery time than traditional hysterectomy surgery.
