Types of growth: Almost all women have some "fibrocystic" change at some time during their reproductive lives. These are various proliferations of cells that come and go; no one really understands them despite their being common. A fibroadenoma is a true tumor. Both are benign. I'm glad you're taking a proactive approach to your health.
