If you're caring for someone with uterine fibroids, you should know that there are a range of symptoms and treatments that might be necessary. Many women with uterine fibroids don't require any treatment unless the fibroids grow. In more severe cases, uterine fibroids may require surgery, or even hysterectomy. In those cases, it's important to provide physical support as your loved one requires, but emotional support is just as necessary. Since women who undergo hysterectomies aren't able to have children, support your loved one as she deals with the associated emotional challenges.
