Do I need treatment?

The presence of fibroids does not mean that they need to be treated. Treatment depends upon the symptomatology and presence of related conditions. However, the presence of uterine fibroids can cause problems which can be solved by:

  • Surgery
  • Uterine artery embolisation (UAE)
  • Medical therapy
  • HIFU
    • Very few lesions are or become malignant. Signs that a fibroid may be malignant are rapid growth or growth after menopause. Such lesions are typically a leiomyosarcoma on histology.

      The aims of the Fibroid Treatment Centre are:

      • To offer a wide range of treatment options for fibroids including transcervical resection of fibroids and Uterine Artery Embolisation.

          • To conduct research into the causes, presentation and treatment of fibroids in order to improve treatment methods and to make the existing treatment modalities safer for women.
