Family practice : You may not have any symptoms. However if and when you do the most common would be pain in lower abdomen / pelvic pain with increased vaginal bleeding you are fairly young to have fibroids so see your dr if you think something is going on.

No: Think of a fibroid as a ball shaped scar in the wall of the womb. It is formed from injured uterine muscle.It has no ability to change positions or move.

Month to years: It can take month to years for fibroids to grow, before they make symptoms like irregular, bleeding, fullness, pain, or cramps. Fast growing fibroids are more of a concern than the ones growing slowly.

It depends: It depends on the problems it is causing and your general health as well as the resources available in your area.Embolization can be done by an interventional radiologist in many cases or hysteroscopic resection is another option.There r drugs which can shrink fibroids but they do tend to grow back rapidly when the drugs are stopped.Fibroids shrink after menopause so,observation is also an option.
