In brief: Very Unlikely

Fibroadenomas are benign tumors of the breast.
They are quite common and are not precancerous. Very rarely there have been cases reported where a fibroadenoma has been thought to turn into a tumor called a cystosarcoma phyllodes of the breast which is a very unusual type of breast cancer.
