Fibroadenoma: is a benign breast tumor. For the majority there is no increased risk of cancer however some cell types can be associated with increased risk. Ask your surgeon for more information about your particular type and the risk. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!

No cancer: Fibrocystic breast disease is NOT cancer and does NOT make you more susceptible to breast cancer, but can make a new lump from breast cancer harder to notice. So do your breast exams regularly! Keep track of exactly which lumps you have so you will notice if one lump suddenly gets larger or a new lump develops
