Fibroadenoma (benign breast lump)--do I need removal or surgery?

Benign: A fibroadenoma is a very common benign breast mass that is found either incidentally on mammogram or ultrasound or is felt as a breast lump by the patient. Depending on the appearance and size of a fibroadenoma on imaging, it can be followed up, biopsied, or surgically removed. The majority however are left alone.

I'm 46 and had a core biopsy for a large breast lump. The diagnosis was fibroadenoma. Will it ever turn malignant?

I'm 46 and had a core biopsy for a large breast lump. The diagnosis was fibroadenoma. Will it ever turn malignant?

NO: Generally fibroadenomas are benign tumors that predcominantly occur in younger females of childbearing age. In and of themselves, they do not transform into malignant lesions. This is determined by other factors such as family history, genetic testing, calcfications, cellular atypia, etc. That will be a part of a complete hsitory and physical examination, .

I found breast lump mammogram shows fibroadenoma but I read in the report axillary lymphnodes mildly enlarged and mostly reactive what does this mean?

I found breast lump mammogram shows fibroadenoma but I read in the report axillary lymphnodes mildly enlarged and mostly reactive what does this mean?

Don't worry: At 19 it is most likely a benign fibroadenoma, so are reactive lymph nodes frequently seen in young woman, best options to take it out, or get a needle biopsy to establish diagnosis, then if it is fibroadenoma could be safely observed.

I have fibrocystic breast disease, bilateral axillary lymphadenopathy & fibroadenoma. Breast lump was present since puberty. Will danzole be safe to use?

Depends: On your symptoms, remember fibrocystic changes in the breasts are "changes" not a disease, the fact you have axillary lymphadenopathy and fibro adenoma, means that you have been evaluated professionally, please don't self medicate, danazol is an impeded androgens and has its side effects, so kindly follow up with a breast specialist, have a 2nd or 3rd opinion, it's your right, good luck

I hv breast lump since 3 yrs. Now I feel pain in breast and armpit. Usg showed fibrodenoma of 8mm, prolactin is high. Can cancer remain same size? 26age

I hv breast lump since 3 yrs. Now I feel pain in breast and armpit. Usg showed fibrodenoma of 8mm, prolactin is high. Can cancer remain same size? 26age

Rare: It is rare for breast cancers to remain the same size for 3 yrs. You situation can be explained by the elevated prolactin level, which will cause breast swelling and tenderness. Cause for high prolactin include certain medications, brain tumors, and othe4rr glands not working well.

Pain of breast lump removal?

Pain of breast lump removal?

Depends but mild: Most patients have mild pain after a surgical bx and require narcotics only for a few days maybe less. If the lesion is benign, with current technology, many lumps can be removed percutaneously in the office under ultrasound guidance through a puncture rather than incision and patients generally require only over the counter pain meds (tylenol, advil, (ibuprofen) aleve).

Is breast lump removal painful?

Is breast lump removal painful?

Minor Surgery: A lumpectomy is usually performed under twilight anesthesia, so you will not be aware of the operation. After surgery, you will probably notice a "black-and-blue" type of soreness that should be well controlled with non-narcotic pain medication (i am a big fan of ibuprofen). Most people return to work in a few days and are back to normal activities in a week. Of course, check with your surgeon.

After benign breast lump removal is your breast puckered?

After benign breast lump removal is your breast puckered?

Rarely: Breast cancer surgeons have learned a lot from our plastic surgery colleagues and now try to apply many of the same principles that they follow with breast surgery so that we can, first and foremost, remove what we need to, but do so with minimal aesthetic changes. Of course, the size of the tumor relative to the breast and it's location will have an effect, but most patients have minimal changes.

After benign breast lump removal are your breasts misshaped?

After benign breast lump removal are your breasts misshaped?

Not usually: The breast is a very forgiving organ with respect to post surgical changes provided that your surgeon follows a few simple rules. The tumor does not belong in your breast, therefore you should not have a loss of normal breast tissue. Scars can be hidden around the edge of the areola or under the breast. Please address this with your surgeon before surgery.

After benign breast lump removal, are your breasts misshappen?

After benign breast lump removal, are your breasts misshappen?

Usually not: Benign or malignant, the lump created by a tumor "does not belong" in the breast; it's removal should theoretically return the breast to normal. The degree of deformity created by surgery depends on the amout of normal tissue disrupted & the location of the incision. An experienced breast surgeon can do this operation with minimal cosmetic deformity. We even have a name for it: oncoplastics.

Does anyone know, after benign breast lump removal are your breasts misshappen?

Does anyone know, after benign breast lump removal are your breasts misshappen?

Should be minimal: Unless the benign breast lump is very large or the breast is very small, proper removal of a benign lump usually causes little deformity. In my experience, removing lesions from the upper, inner quadrant of the breast is more prone to some deformity but it should be minimal if performed by an experienced breast surgeon.

Is the cost of breast lump removal covered if I had priorplastic surgery there?

Is the cost of breast lump removal covered if I had priorplastic surgery there?

Breast lump removal: It is important to determine the cause of the breast lump in advance of surgery. Surgical excision of a breast lump unrelated to the previous breast plastic surgery should, in general, be covered by one's health insurance policy. Is the lump is due to the previous plastic surgery (e.g., ruptured breast implant, silicone), be sure to check with your health insurance carrier before surgery.

Norgesic were given after removal breast lump?

Norgesic were given after removal breast lump?

Rather odd: Norgesic is a combination of a muscle relaxer and tylenol (acetaminophen). It would be rather odd to prescribe it after a lumpectomy.
