In brief: Benign tumor
A fibroadenoma is a common benign breast tumor. They are generally firm, somewhat mobile, smooth walled, painless, and slow growing.
The definitive diagnosis can only be made by pathologic study which requires either a biopsy or removal of the mass.

In brief: Not cancer
A fibroadenoma is a benign lump in the breast.
It has a firm feel to it, and is fairly common in the younger population.
