Yes: There are several different ways to remove submucosal fibroids. With hysteroscopy, a tiny camera is put inside the uterus allowing the fibroid to be cut up and removed. Fibroid embolization is a procedure where the blood supply to the fibroid is blocked, causing the fibroids to die off. Hysterectomy is an option if nothing else works. Submucosal fibroids can give you a discharge. Best wishes

Most likely: Although non surgical intervention have been in use for some time, see image, surgical removal may be a better option for some, after you consult your OB/Gyn physician. The issue is that these fibroids grow back frequently. If that happens, you can try the non surgical option. Good luck
