- Pelvic pain or pressure 
- Inability to control urination or frequent urination

If you don't have any symptoms, or if your symptoms are mild, you won't need treatment. If you have more severe symptoms, there's a range of treatments available. Discuss with your doctor which treatment is most suitable for you.There are many treatment options available depending on the particular patients condition and age:

Hysterectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the uterus,usually along with the cervix.This is the most common and permanent cure of fibroids. But a big drawback of this surgery is that a woman cannot ecome pregnant or carry a baby after this surgery. This option is only considered if the fibroids are too large. 

A hysterectomy is performed by making an incision in the abdomen. Sometimes the ovaries are also removed along with the uterus and cervix. The decision to remove the ovaries depends on how close the woman is to menopause or if the ovaries are diseased.

Myomectomy is a method to remove fibroids without removing the uterus. This surgery allows the woman to bear children, but only 50% women can carry a successful pregnancy after a myomectomy. Myomectomy is performed through an incision in the abdomen with the assistance of a laparoscope or hysteroscope.

Laparoscopic MyomectomyThis is indicated when the female is young and wants to preserve her uterus. Through this keyhole surgery the myoma or the fibroid is removed. This procedure leaves no long scar, so better cosmetic results are obtained.
