Fibroadenoma: Fibroadenomas are benign solid growths in the breast that are common, and is the likeliest possibility. A growth of precancerous cells is less likely. The biopsy will tell you what is going on. If you are worried check with the doctors office in a couple of days to see if the results are back.
