I have one subserosal exophytic posterior fibroid of 1.7x0.9 cms fibroid , 26+ old, no clildren, do I need to worry, is it curable through medicine.
No & no: That size and location isn't worrisome. But 26 is a bit young for having these common tumors. About 50% of older women have them. They aren't curable with medication. If they get big or cause symptoms, they can be surgically removed. In some situations there are other treatment options but only after childbearing is completed.

What`s the best treatment for :Exophytic Fibroid at the Fundus of the Uterus measuring 5.0 x 4.4 x 4.4??Thanks
Best: If you are 45 years old and the fibroid is not causing problems with bleeding/pressure, the best treatment is probably to do nothing. If its causing symptoms consider hysterectomy, UFE, or possibly myomectomy. If you are not 45 years old - you should always give your correct age - it would depend on whether you have wishes for pregnancy in the future. ...Read more

Severe Round ligament pain for 3months. not pregnant. Ultra sound yesterday showed fibroids. Can fibroids cause RLP? Maybe endometriosis ?
Yes: Fibroids can even involve the round ligament, although more likely to have exophytic fibroids growing away from uterus on the side of your pain.
