Did you already get a surgery to have it removed?
I also have a fibroadenoma on my left breast since 2015 which is 4 and 3cm in sizes.
Actually i have 2 fibroadenoma lumps which is sticked together that whenerver
i checked myself i only feel one lump.
When i got an ultrasound last July 2017 i was shocked that i have 2 lumps on my left breast
as mentioned earlier 4 and 3cm in sizes and my doctor found out that this is a fibroadenoma.
I have consulted many doctors and they only advised me to remove my lumps but I was so scared by that time so for the meantime I took different kinds of herbal plants expecting that my lumps would just dissolve or minimize its size but unfortuantely nothing happens.
Until I decided to have a surgery to ease my worry that it will become cancerous as time goes by.
My doctor and I scheduled the surgery last January 19, 2018 I was under general anesthesia by that time and it was indeed painless. The surgery only took 45mins to remove my lumps then it was sent immediately to the hospital laboratory for the biopsy. On that same day I was discharged at the hospital (Normally excision of breast mass can be an outpatient). I was advised by my doctor for a 2 week rest and the result of the biopsy was released after a week of the surgery and thanks god it was benign and I don't have to worry anymore because of that but as per my doctor I still have to check myself for a year if lumps will return or any strange feeling. For now I still have pain in my left breast but I cannot feel any lumps on it. I will still checked this thing to my doctor first.
By the way, I only got 4cm in length scar which not very noticeable since it was cut near my nipples.
Nothing's change on the shape of my breast, It really looks fine though.
Im only 23 and from the Philippines

Hello and welcome. I can not help with your specific problem but what I would suggest is perhaps a visit to your GP again to get it checked out and give you peace of mind. Your GP may refer you back to your breast clinic, you could also give the breast clinic a call directly as has only been a year they might book an appointment for you

I have found out in September that i have a adenoma in my inner left breast and a breast cyst. The docto has told me that i must just leave the adenoma alone it will go away on it own. But i am paranoid now and i have constant pain in my left breast but the pain starts from the outer part where the bone is and goes under the breast. Anyone had anything similar to this? is worrying me but my radiologist seems fine and not worried.

hmmm well, there's nothing wrong in eating well, but personally I would be sceptical of anything which claims to cure anything by diet alone, in place of any recommended conventional treatment.
Obviously, yours is a benign condition, so it's not the same situation, but for any cancerous change this approach would be life threatening.
Loads of us here use diet &/or alternative treatments to complement conventional treatments, but not to replace it.

Hi ladies, I've just come back from the breast clinic due to a pain and lump in my breast which I have had for over 1 and half years now. Been advised that I may have this, waiting for biopsy results. I'm 30 years old and breastfeed my daughter until Jan last year I thought it might have been due to this. I have been doing a bit of research and stumbled across this, I am going to give it a go because I suppose anything is better than the pain or surgery and what's the worst thing that can happen from eating a whole heap of fruit and veg right?
I hope this helps

Hi there, I'm thinking about getting my fibroadenoma removed because it feels like mine has increased in size since I was diagnosed two years ago. I first found the lump at the age of 19 when it was the size of a small grape. Initially I was too scared to go to the doctors but I pushed myself to go once I noticed it was growing rapidly. The lump was 3x4cm in size and the doctor said that it wasn't nesscessary to get surgery. However it's been 2 years and it feels like the lump has grown in diameter and thickness. I feel like the more I get older the more it is going to grow. Sometimes it has an uncomfortable feeling and I have to rub around it to soothe the area. Also, if I lift up my arms you can clearly see it protuding under the skin. I've decided to go back to doctor to get a second review and see whether I can get surgery to have it removed.
I've never been in surgery before and am quite scared to be honest. I would be very grateful if anyone could share their surgery experience (specifically UK). Like how long it took? Do you get a big scar? Is it very noticeable? Does the breast shape change after? How much rest you need after surgery? etc.
Thanks in advance!

I'm 27 years old. I have never felt any pain in the breast but recently found out I have 2 breast lumps in my right breast. One is 1.5cm and another about 4mm. I am not sure should I got them removed...I have read quite many cases of fibroadenomas grow back after surgical removal...Anyone out there who had fibroadenomas and left untreated? Feeling lost...
