In brief: Surgery if Symptoms

No medication permanently shrinks fibroid tumors.
If you have symptoms options exist to help improve them: myomectomy (cutting out fibroids, repairing uterus) for women who desire future pregnancy hysterectomy (fibroid uterus removal), preferably laparoscopic or vaginal routes, best choice if family complete uterine artery embolization - injection of foam to block uterus blood supply.

In brief: Surgery

Fibroid is a broad term: fibroid of the uterus are removed by myomectomy or surgery.
A fibroid tumor of the soft tissues (fibromatosis) is also removed by surgery. Perhaps you can clarify the question more.
