Fibroids
Hi

Please help

I'm 35 years old with a 14x10cm fibroid, no real symptoms and I don't want to have a hysterectomy. What is my best option; to leave as is or to have a myomectomy?

Thanks for your help

14cm is rather large. It could well cause problems by pressing on other organs. I would suggest removal.
