Is it always necessary to treat fibroids?


Is it necessary always to treat fibroids? The answer really is if somebody has a small fibroid or even a slightly large fibroid but they’re totally asymptomatic and it doesn’t bother them then you don’t treat it. So I always teach, I’ve taught countless fellows, residents and students, you treat the patient not the film or the finding on the ultra sound or x-ray. So if the patient is sympomatic, you’ve got pain, you’re bleeding and you’ve got other problems associated with the fibroid, then you got to treat the fibroid, you don’t fix something that’s not broke.
