Depends: Fibroadenoma is the most common benign breast tumor made up of glandular and connective tissues in females in their 20s-30s. If the mass is small, stable, no enlargement, closed monitoring is recommended. However, surgical removal is recommended if the mass is enlarged with surgical correction possible without overt scarring to the area.
