Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
HIFU uses multiple ultrasound energy beams to destruct the fibroid tissue thermally or by heat.
The size of the fibroid needs to be less than 10 cm and also there should not be any calcification.
Also the lcoation of fibroid is important so that no bowel or bladder come inside the filed of ultrasound beam.
this is a most recent non invasive technique.
if you are a candidate ( decided after MRI), then you will recover fast without any significant complications.
yes it is very new procedur for fibroid.
so experience is limited.
only highly trained interventional radiologists will do it.
This is actually known as Magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound surgery (MRgFUS).
yes myomectomy is your next best option.
Can be done by robotic assisted technology also known as Da Vinci procedure.
has less blood loss and faster recovery time.
more expensive also
Any further question?

if you are getting pain and bleeding, and desire to become pregnant, it is better to remove it.
Yes the answer will be emailed to you after you finish the rating.
The firoid grows under estrogen influence.
so it only shrinks when you go into menopause.
usually not since you already reached 46.
if no significant pain or bleeding, you can try to wait and watch
