This is just something I’m wondering about after reading about MR guided focused ultrasound technology, which is a non-invasive heat treatment option for getting rid of certain tumors including uterine fibroids. I get that they’re not talking about your everyday heat treatment when they talk about this ultrasound technology that beams and “heats and destroys targeted tissue”, but I still wonder if possibly it might be helpful to start using a heating pad as part of my daily routine in my effort to treat my fibroids. I’m thinking it might be worth a shot. What’s the worse that could happen? Hopefully it won’t have the opposite effect and stimulate the fibroids and make them grow bigger and multiply.
