Fibroadenoma: In themselves they should not be a problem. Are the growths near where the baby latches on? If causing a physical obstruction that would be a reason to get removed. Do the growths cause you pain or discomfort? That would be another reason to address the issue. If the growths are not affecting you then I would leave alone.
