Fibroadenoma is beni: Fibroadenoma occurs in your females and is easy to diagnose by clinical exam and mammogram. Most fibroadenomas do not grow and can be left alone. But if it is increasing in size over 6 monthly examinations by the doctor and by your own self examination, then a biopsy and or removal may be the best choice of managing it further. Have your surgeon guide you further.
