A 28-year-old female asked:

Can an area of fibrosis increase in size by 2mm on ultrasound as a result of pregnancy induced breast enlargement?

?: Small increase probably not significant.

Possible: During pregnancy, there is an increase in the number and size of glands in the breasts. An area of "fibrosis" could certainly change in pregnancy. I would caution you that any change in a breast lump must be examined by your ob/gyn. Do not assume that this is just benign.
