A 42-year-old member asked:
Please tell me can fibroadenoma cause tumors to form somewhere besides breast tissue?

No: Fibroadenoma of the breast is an overgrowth of breast tissue in the younger patient responding to breast tissue hormone sensitivity and not yet effecting duct system. The lesions are benign and are not related to formation of new breast lesions which may occur independently.
