Most fibroadenomas don't affect an individual’s risk of breast cancer. However, the breast cancer risk might increase slightly if one has a complex fibroadenoma — which may contain abnormal cysts or dense, opaque tissue called calcifications. A pathologist makes the diagnosis of a complex fibroadenoma after reviewing the tissue from a biopsy of the lump.
What to expect from your doctor :
- When did you notice the lump? Has it gotten bigger since then?
- Does the lump change in size around the time of your menstrual periods?
- Have you or other family members had breast problems?
- What date did your last menstrual period begin?
- Is the lump tender or painful?
- Have you had nipple discharge?
- Has anyone in your family had breast cancer?
- Have you ever had a mammogram? If so, when?
- Diagnostic mammography. Mammography uses X-rays to produce an image (mammogram) of suspicious areas in the breast tissue. A fibroadenoma usually appears on a mammogram as a breast mass with smooth, round edges, distinct from surrounding breast tissue.
- Breast ultrasound. If patient is younger than age 30, the doctor may recommend breast ultrasound instead of a mammogram to evaluate a breast lump. Dense breast tissue in younger women makes mammograms difficult to interpret.
- Fine-needle aspiration. Through a thin needle inserted into the breast, the doctor attempts to withdraw the contents of the breast lump. If fluid comes out, the lump is most likely a cyst.
- Core needle biopsy. Based on the physical exam and breast imaging findings, the doctor may recommend a core needle biopsy. This test uses a larger needle than the one used in fine-needle aspiration to collect tissue samples from the lump, which go to a lab for analysis.
Treatments and drugs :
In many cases, fibroadenomas require no treatment. However, some women choose to have their fibroadenomas surgically removed for their peace of mind.
