Remote risk: The risk of a fibroid become cancer are remote. You may watch and wait as many fibroids will stop growing and regress at menopause. If it causes any issues, a fibroid may be embolized, or excised or you may choose to have a hysterectomy.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
