In brief: See below

Depending on number and size, you might be a candidate a uterine artery embolization which can shrink the fibroids with surgery.
However; sometimes hysterectomy maybe the only option. Talk to your doctor about your options.

In brief: Hyst?

Fibroids by themselves are rarely an indication for hysterectomy.
Prolapse if causing uncomfortable pressure, pain with urination, pain with intercourse, leaking urine may be a reason for hysterectomy. None of these are life threatening by lifestyle threatening which is a reason. Ultimately it is up to you if you think you need it. Do what feel right to you.
