I'm 21 years old and have a lump in right breast. It's fibroadenoma. What happens to it in the future?

In brief: Depends
Fibrocystic disease of the breast (fcb) is annoying but not dangerous.
It makes screening examination of the breast & mammography more difficult. Ultrasound & needle biopsy is needed at times to be sure it is just fcb. There are reports from britain that going without a bra helps this quite a bit. See http://www.007b.Com/fibrocystic_breast_pain.Php. Breast feeding & avoiding caffeine helps too.
