Yes: I am going to assume you are talking about leiomyomas of the uterus. They do not always need to be treated, and sometimes they can be embolized (injected to plug their artery) instead.

Fibroid: Fibroid embolization can treat nyoman effectively without operation. Hifu or high frequency ultrasound can treat fibroids with ultrasound waves but is really only good for one solitary fibroid.

Yes: Uterine artery embolization, focused ultrasound, and gnrh agonists(drugs) can temporarily treat fibroids without surgery.
