Do lots of people get breast fibroadenoma, or is it unusual?

In brief: Fairly common

Benign breast nodules such as fibroadenoma are fairly common.
There seems to be a degree of heredity in female family members. Breast tenderness, especially near the time of the menstrual cycle, is also associated with this. Most can be observed if they have a benign radiology or ultrasound appearance, and if they remain stable in size.
