Depends: The answer depends on a patient's goals. To rid oneself forever from the fibroid challenge a hysterectomy is definitive. A myomectomy removes the fibroids but leaves the remainder of the uterus behind. Fibroids can regrow as it is generally impossible to remove all fibroid cells. Uterine artery embolization will shrink the fibroids but rarely removes them entirely. Medication can help, also.
