Ask your doctor: Appropriate management of a complex fibroadenomas is controversial. While some believe that complex fibroadenomas merit complete removal for histological examination, others suggest that they can be managed conservatively following core biopsy. They are associated with a slightly increased risk of cancer when multicentric proliferative changes are found in the surrounding glandular tissue. Good q.
