Normal: It's a common benign growth in the breast, not associated with cancer. You may continue to make these. Regular self-exam can familiarize you with how lumpy you may be all the time. If you feel something new or very different have your primary care provider check it.

I'm 21 years old and have a lump in right breast. It's fibroadenoma. What happens to it in the future?

Depends: Fibrocystic disease of the breast (fcb) is annoying but not dangerous. It makes screening examination of the breast & mammography more difficult. Ultrasound & needle biopsy is needed at times to be sure it is just fcb. There are reports from britain that going without a bra helps this quite a bit. See http://www.007b.Com/fibrocystic_breast_pain.Php. Breast feeding & avoiding caffeine helps too.
