2nd opinion : If the fibroid is large and in an awkward spot and you do not desire more children than a hysterectomy is perhaps a good choice. If it is small or in an easily accessible spot a myomectomy might be a better choice. Accessa is a minimally invasive option available to some. Without seeing your ultrasound it's impossible to say. Schedule a visit for a second opinion.
