Uterine fibroids (leiomyoma) are the most common benign tumors in women. Better understanding of the pathophysiology, as well as recent technical advancements opened the gates for new options for women who suffer from symptomatic uterine fibroids. Treatments are categorized in four groups: surgical removal, minimally invasive or non-invasive approach causing damage to cellular viability, medical treatments to reduce volume and relieve symptoms, and complementary medicine. This review may assist in tailoring the type of treatment according to age, desire for future fertility, size and location of the fibroids.
