is fibroadenosis in breast something bad?

Dr. Regina Hampton
Breast Surgery 23 years experience
No: Fibroadenomas are benign without any potential to turn into cancer. An experienced surgeon can determine by examination and imaging if there is a fibroadenoma. The most definitive confirmation is to have a needle biopsy. This is performed as an outpatient procedure and results are back in 2-3 days.
