Many: Usually fibroids are small & cause no problems, and do not require treatment. It is rare for them to be cancerous. Most common symptom is heavier periods, and these can be treated with birth control pill etc. /mirena iucd. , Lupron (leuprolide) can shrink fibroids. Fibroids almost never cause pain-if someone has pain, don't assume it is the fibroid. Surgery if very large or other problems.
