Tubular Adenoma Of Breast
I have a tubular adenoma in my left breast can it turn into cancer and should I have it removed right away?
Rare but benign: These are quite uncommon. I don't believe they have any malignant potential beyond normal breast, but if the mass bothers you, feel free to have it excised. Since it's uncommon, see if your biopsy has been or can be looked at by two pathologists. ...Read more
Dr said breast lump was big and with echo he could tell if it was an adenoma, now says I need another scan because he's not sure?
Complete the workup:
What led to the original ultrasound? Was it an abnormal exam or mammogram?
Please see your doctor and get a complete breast evaluation. Depending on the mammogram results (and make sure the mammography has your ultrasound images!), further workup may be necessary, possibly including mri.
If the findings are not completely benign, a biopsy to look at tissue under the microscope is required. ...Read more

Mostly Shape: Tubular breasts have a different appearance, typically are not large in outside diameter shape and give appearance of oversized nipple-areolar compared to the outside diameter breast tissue. Narrow base leading to a more 'pointed' appearance is often seen. See your primary care doctor or breast surgeon for evaluation and diagnosis. ...Read more
It is correctable: Tubular or "tuberous" breast deformity is not uncommon. The breast develops typically with a narrow, constricted base, a high and tight lower breast fold and a large protruding areola. Correction should address all of these areas typically by releasing the tissues, placing an implant and modifying the nipple and areola with reduction and/or lifting. Sometimes a staged procedure is indicated. ...Read more
Absolutely: Tubular breast deformity refers to a developmental breast deformation characterized by a small breast with a narrow base, elevated crease, and a large areola with breast tissue herniating into it. Treatment usually involved lowering of the inframammary crease, scoring the breast tissue to allow for expansion, implant placement, and often reduction of the size of the nipple-areola complex. ...Read more
Tuberous Breast: Tuberous breasts are typically more narrow, with a higher fold under the breast. The breast looks as if it is hanging off the fold. Also the nipple tends to be stretched out and more full. You can have tuberous breasts on both sides but more commonly one side is normal so the differences I described are easier to see. Tuberous breasts can be corrected by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. ...Read more
No real first signs: There are no real first signs of tubular breast deformity since all breast developing through puberty will look different. Some breasts may even look tubular to start and end up being completely normal. Tubular breasts are usually defined as follow:large areola, narrow base to the breast and a short nipple to fold distance. The breast will have a constricted base and may look like a snoopy nose. ...Read more

Surgery best option: Yes surgery is probably the best option but this can be done with your own tissue rearrangement or with implants (silicone or saline) or recently great results have been obtained with fat grafting using liposuction to obtain the fat through small needle like incisions and places with similar needle like incisions measuring 1/8 inch. See fattransferbreastaug. Com for results. ...Read more

I have tubular breast deformity in both breast. I fill a c cup. But I want to get them fixed. Will I be able to?

Likely difficult: Tubular breasts, as sometimes seen with pcos, mean that the glandular tissue is underdeveloped. Therefore, although some breastfeeding is usually possible, most women will not have a sufficient supply to exclusively breastfeed. Remember any amount of breast milk you provide your baby is better than none. ...Read more
