Confused, FibroAdenoma

Hi, I have 2.3cm FibroAdenoma on my left breast and my breast surgen left a choice to me whether to go for the removal of the lump or to keep it and observe. I prefer to go for the removal of the fibroadenoma. But I do see some postings saying that removing it might take some of the breast tissue and this might cause cancer. And if I keep it, that also leads to Cancer. Now I'm very confused. Please let me know what I should do. Thank You.

Confused, FibroAdenoma

Hi. How are you doing? Honestly, I have not encountered any readings on removing a part of the breast tissue and breast cancer causality, nor a fibroadenoma leading to cancer as this is not a premalignant lesion.  Perhaps you can provide an internet link for review/analysis. If you have doubts regarding the procedure that is to be done on you, you should always tell this to your doctor.  He/she is in the best position to answer all your questions. Take care.

effect of breastfeeding with firoadenomas

Hi, First,I would like to congratulate you on the birth of your baby! :) If the lump in your breast is truly a fibroadenoma,then there is absolutely no harm to you or your baby to continue breast feeding. The only thing that concerns me is that you did not see your doctor post partum for a follow-up. Most likely it is a fibroadenoma,but a lump in the breast is always concerning whether it's a cysts (fluid filled sac) or a Fibroadenoma..Examining a breast lump by palpation alone is not enough and it should be evaluated either by a mammogram or Ultrasound to confirm that the lesion is harmless or biopsied if it appears suspicious to the radiologist. I would advise you to consult your doctor to see what steps should be taken to make sure it's a fibroadenoma.If tests confirm that it is, then you have nothing to worry about ,because these kind of lumps are benign and do not turn into cancer. All the best to you and your beautiful new born baby...

I wouldn't think that if the mass were something that could recur that your Dr. was thinking "cancer". Fibroadenomas when removed or not don't exactly recur but more may develop. I don't quite "get" the term borderline unless it might be a Lipoma (fatty tumor) or a type of cyst that wasn't entirely filled with fluid but some solid material.   It really isn't all that unusual to have specimens sent to another Lab though ... and it would be VERY rare to have found a cancerous tumor as large as you mentioned unless you had it for a few years.  Regards ...

Biopsy Pathology Results

It's unfortunate that patients are given reports with terminology that is meant to be understood by only Physicians or other Medical practitioners. Evidently you have a Fibroadenoma (benign breast tumor) as well as other small cysts. I suggest you contact your Physician for a complete explanation of the report as it applies to you. You can search definitions for the terminology but only Your own Dr. can explain how the report relates to your complete medical history.  Regards ....

ultrasound report

Hi there, Definitely get a biopsy.  I am 32yo and had a so called fibroadenoma too.  Even after my surgeon removed it,  he said he was confident that is what it was.  Mine was not irregular and was encapsulated.  Unfortunately, he was wrong. I have no family hx or risk factors, besides birth control use.  So, I was completely blown away.  Luckily, it was caught early.   Most of the time, fibroadenomas are benign.  You should get it removed though and get a biopsy just in case.   Don't take a chance.   Good luck and hoping for B9 results!!!

is it canser

It sounds like you have fibroid tumors and they are not cancerous if your doctor said everything is ok. I have fibroid tumors in my breast tissue to and it's quite painful at times! I usually notice that the pain is worse at some times than others and I think it just fluctuates with your monthly cycle. From what I understand, breast cancer usually starts as a painless lump and usually only in one breast. With fibrocystic breasts, the painful lumps are in both breasts and usually in the same spots too.

Calcification not checked with a biopsy - why?

Hi, If your radiologist and doctor have both decided to get a review in 1 year then the elsionis most probably benign and just needs to be monitored for any change in size or shape. You mention that the radiologist said that the lesion was old? were there any previous reports to compare? Do you notice any abnormal features on breasts elf examination like a lump, skin changes or nipple discharge? You could get a review in 6 months if ou are not convinced or if you notice anything abnormal on breast self examination. Let us know is you have any doubts and keep us psoted on how you are doing. Regards.

Confusing scar like thing on breast

Sorry but I couldn't see anything when viewing the picture .... it was quite small and blurred way too much when I enlarged it.  I wouldn't think that this would be the surgical scar from 2005; if it were it would have shown up at that time. This could be what is often referred to as a "stretch mark" if your Sister has gained a considerable amount of weight lately. If I were her I would ask my Dr. the next time she sees him/her for an evaluation of this issue. A clinical exam and possibly some type of test would be the only way to tell what this area represents.   Best wishes to you both.
