Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumours that develop in a woman's uterus that sometimes cause significant bleeding, pain and discomfort. Surgical treatments for serious cases include hysterectomy, or removal of the uterus, and myomectomy, or removal of the fibroid. A newer and less invasive technology called Uterine Artery Embolization involves cutting off the blood supply to the fibroid, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. Doctors prescribe pain medication, hormone treatment or birth control pills to manage less serious uterine fibroids.
