Surgery

In brief: Tissue-Diagnosis

Fibroadenomas are the most common breast tumors.
Even the best of us can be fooled by exam or even ultrasound findings--biopsy is the best way to DX definitively. These do not need to be surgically removed although many women prefer to if they are large, palpable, and/or growing. The operation can be done under twilight anesthesia, usually in a cosmetic manner. Cryotherapy is another option.
