A 36-year-old female asked:

"Fibroid ?'s": Fibroid surgery can be done by major surgery (open abdomen) or laparoscopic surgery (easier recovery but not all fibroids may be removed this way) or by embolic therapy, which stops the blood supply to fibroid tumors. Unless the fibroids are causing steady bleeding or pain, or infertility, get a second opinion to confirm the need for this kind of treatment.
