Should uterine fibroids (sizes 1.2 to 1.8cm) be removed? what is the procedure to remove these fibroids? after removal, will they reappear again?

Maybe: Small fibroids that are causing problems due to bleeding are very easily and well treated using uterine fibroid embolization (ufe). This is a minimally invasive procedure done by an interventional radiologist.You can find information at www.Ask4ufe.Com or www.Sirweb.Org.
