Uterine Fibroids (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
All patients should follow their health care practitioner's instructions. A health care practitioner may choose to do more frequent pelvic exams, such as every six months, to determine whether there is growth of a fibroid.
Patients should educate themselves about treatment options. Patients may need to make a choice depending on the progression of their treatment and their fibroid symptoms; their health care providers can help them to get information about any treatment options.
