    What are the Treatments for Subserosal fundal fibroid?

    I am 28years old, had a baby boy who is 8 months old.
    When I was pregnant, I come to know that i had subserosal fundal fibroid, which has grown very rapidly in size.
    In my latest scan says: “The uterus is averted and bulky. It measures 9.6x3.9x6.2 cm.
    It is not mobile and nontender. the myometrium is heterogeneous. A large subserosal
    fibroid is demonstrated, measuring 12.4x9.4x8.8 cm in size. The endometrium is distorted by this fibroid and not well visualised. There is a sliver of anechoic free fluid within the pouch of Douglas.”

    Can you suggest me any options on this? Thanks so much.

    Subserosal fibroids grow from the outside wall of your womb into your pelvic cavity. They can become very large. In many cases fibroids do not cause any symptoms. However, if you are having symptoms you need to discuss your treatment options with a specialist. 
    Treatment may vary according to symptoms, type and size of fibroids, rate of growth, desire for future fertility and personal preference.
    You may be advised to adopt a wait and see approach – this is that you are monitored regularly to access rate of growth or any change in symptoms
    In some circumstances medication may used
    There are numerous surgical options, the nature and type of which  will depend on the type of fibroid, size, symptoms, your age and desire for future pregnancies etc.
