What's the best treatment for uterine fibroids?

Depends: The "best" treatment depends on many things. Do they bother you? Are you done having kids? Are they growing rapidly? You definitely need to discuss options with your doc, but they include doing nothing, minimally invasive surgery removing just fibroid, minimally invasive types of hysterectomy, open hysterectomy, uterine artery embolization. Find the option that best fits your needs/desires.
