In brief: New or incomplete

It is unlikely tht you have a recurrent fibroadenoma.
In all likelihood it is a new mass or the previous one was incompletely excised. In either case, with a previous tissue diagnosis, no treatment may be required. However, if it is suspicous on ultrasound or mammo or mri, a biopsy may be recommended to establish a definitive diagnosis.
