Can fibroids lead to cancer?
Having fibroids does not increase the risk of developing a cancerous fibroid. Having fibroids also does not increase a woman's chances of getting other forms of cancer in the uterus.

Are chemotherapy treatments also used for treating fibroids?
It's not certain yet but certain studies show that In premenopausal women with fibroids, the breast cancer drug anastrozole (Arimidex) reduces fibroid size and improves bothersome symptoms,

I don't think anyone will want to go for chemotherapeutic treatment for a benign tumor.
