Many options: It sort of depends how many your have and how big they are. Many times a gynecologist could also deal with these, and often they can be treated in the office with local anesthesia and a simple snip of a scissors. Like so many things in medicine, one look is worth a thousand words, and you'll have to have a experienced doctor look at them to give you a good answer.
