What is a fibroadenoma?
Finding a lump in your breast can be a scary experience, but not all lumps and tumors are cancerous. One type of benign (noncancerous) tumor is called a fibroadenoma. While not life-threatening, a fibroadenoma may still require treatment.
A fibroadenoma is a noncancerous tumor in the breast that’s commonly found in women under the age of 30. According to the American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation, approximately 10 percent of women in the United States receive a diagnosis of fibroadenoma. African-American women are more likely to develop these tumors.
The tumor consists of breast tissue and stromal, or connective, tissue. Fibroadenomas can occur in one or both breasts.
What does a fibroadenoma feel like?
Some fibroadenomas are so small they can’t be felt. When you’re able to feel one, it’s very distinct from the surrounding tissue. The edges are clearly defined and the tumors have a detectable shape. They’re moveable under the skin and typically not tender. These tumors often feel like marbles, but may have a rubbery feel to them.
What causes a fibroadenoma?
The exact cause of fibroadenomas isn’t known. Hormones such as estrogen may play a part in the growth and development of the tumors. Taking oral contraceptives before the age of 20 has been associated with a higher risk of developing fibroadenomas as well.
These tumors may grow, particularly during pregnancy. During menopause, they often shrink. It’s also possible for fibroadenomas to resolve on their own.
Some women have reported that avoiding foods and drinks that are stimulants — like tea, chocolate, soft drinks, and coffee — have improved their breast symptoms. Even though this is worth trying, there are no studies that have scientifically established a link between ingesting stimulants and improving breast symptoms.
What are symptoms of a fibroadenoma of the breast?
In most of the cases, the fibroadenomas are single in number. As mentioned earlier, they may have a rubbery feel and are moveable under the skin. They feel firm and are mostly painless. In some cases, they become tender or painful to touch before menses. This tenderness is relieved after the menses.
How are fibroadenomas diagnosed?
A breast fibroadenoma will usually feel smooth, firm and rubbery. It may move within your breast tissue when you’re doing your breast self-exam, and it is not likely to feel painful or tender. Most of these benign lumps are between one and three centimeters (½ to 1 ½ inches), but some may grow as large as five centimeters (around 2 ½ inches).
Treating a fibroadenoma
If you receive a fibroadenoma diagnosis, it doesn’t necessarily have to be removed. Depending on your physical symptoms, family history, and personal concerns, you and your doctor can decide whether to have it removed or not.
Fibroadenomas that don’t grow and are definitely not cancerous can be closely monitored with clinical breast exams and imaging tests, such as mammograms and ultrasounds.
It’s important to point out a few cautions with fibroadenomas. These benign breast lumps are most common in women under the age of 35. In women older than age 35, a definitive diagnosis is more important. A breast biopsy is one way to do this, though a breast biopsy only samples one part of a lump. We now know that many breast lesions, both benign and cancerous are heterogeneous. This means that the cells in one part of the tumor may be different than those in another part of the tumor. There have been cases in which a breast biopsy has revealed a fibroadenoma, but after removal, when the entire lesion is evaluated by a pathologist, cancer has been present as well.
Treatment fibroadenoma of the breast
If your doctor has confirmed a diagnosis of a fibroadenoma, there are several different treatment options available. These span the spectrum from simply observing the fibroadenoma, to a lumpectomy. There are many factors that may affect your choice of treatment. One is whether you have a simple or a complex fibroadenoma. Your symptoms are important as well. Are you having discomfort? Or, instead, are you having emotional discomfort due to wondering if you’re possibly missing something. What you are feeling emotionally is as important as what you are feeling physically for the most part.

Keep in mind that there are many types of breast lumps, only one of which is a fibroadenoma. If you have a breast lump, even if you feel certain that it is only a fibroadenoma, get it checked out. There are, unfortunately, too many people who have dismissed a breast lump as being “only” a fibroadenoma, only later to learn that they actually had breast cancer.
