In brief: Yes
If incompletely removed, a fibroadenoma can grow back.
Alternatively, it is possible to develop a second, unrelated fibroadenoma in the same breast.

In brief: Unlikely
If completely removed it should be gone.
Scar tissue in the area can be confusing. Another fibroadenoma can occur in that or other breast.
