In brief: Biopsy

An experienced surgeon can determine by examination and imaging if there is a fibroadenoma.
The most definitive confirmation is to have a needle biopsy. This is performed as an outpatient procedure and results are back in 2-3 days. Fibroadenomas are benign without any potential to turn into cancer.
