No: A fibroadenoma is a solid benign mass. It can increase in size or become more sensitive/painful during pregnancy due to the increased hormone exposure.

I got fibroadenoma about 5 mm and cyst about 5 mm in left breast , my dr said leave it and check every 6months, am not sure is it ok even with pregnancy?
Yes, it is OK: These are too small to worry about. Yet it is a good idea to check them in 6 months again than in one year. But why did you have your breast checked in the first instance?
