  • Hi I recently found a large lump in my breast and doc is sending me for ultrasound on Thursday along with a mammogram. Doc also says fibroadenoma. I am not so sure. I am in perimenopause, have had no history of breast cancer in family or self. The lump apprently grew rather rapidly in a matter of just a couple of weeks or less ( I had not noticed it at all before Friday) and is now 3" X 4". Needless to say I am uneasy. Please post what the results were for you. I am hoping you had a good prognosis. Apparently fibroadenomas are very common in younger women than me. Thanks for listening.

  • Hi I recently found a large lump in my breast and doc is sending me for ultrasound on Thursday along with a mammogram. Doc also says fibroadenoma. I am not so sure.

Please post what the results were for you. I am hoping you had a good prognosis. Apparently fibroadenomas are very common in younger women than me. Thanks for listening.I went for an annual mamogram the first of May this year. About 8 or 9 weeks ago while taking a shower i noticed a hard lump in my right breast. It was not there back in MAY. I FOUND OUT THEY WERE LOOKING AT CALCIUM DEPOSITS on my left breast but compared what they saw this time with an older mamogram and so no real change so they were not alarmed AND NO FURTHER CHECK WAS DONE. Now that was in May, 2007, June 2007, this year. Now it October, 2007 and on the 12th I went back and had another mamogram and a sonogram. Anyway when I noticed the lump I called and made an appointment with my Dr. and after she in turn felt the lump she sent me back to have another mamogram and high res images and the sonagrma. . Now they want me to have a biopsy. Do not know when they will schedule that. I am now rather scared. I am worried. Tonight my chest started hurting above my right breast. It was a pain like somone hit me in the bone there. Kind of a sore feeling pain to the touch. The pain goes through to my back in the same height and area as in the front. I do not know what to think. Tomorrow, or today MONDAY OCT. 15TH, 2007, I am calling my DR. to see if she got the reports back from last Friday the 12th...and see if they will hurry up and make that appointment for the biopsy they think I should have. I have lost weight from May til present and I also have nto felt too good. I have other problems as well. I have constant hip and back pain and have had it for years now due to my severe scoliosis. (AT TLEAST THAT WHAT I HAVE THOUGHT IT WAS ALL THIS TIME.) I take quite a bit of Ibprofin, Tylenol, Motrin, etc. for the pain from my hip and back. I also have spells of either IBS OR DIVETICULITIS, OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. I DO NOT KNOW. I HAVE NO INSURANCE AND MY MAMOGRAMS AND PAP SMEARS HAVE BEEN DONE THOUGH MY LOCAL HEALTH DEPT. The Dr. there is who has sent me to the Hospital for the further checks. I hope she will continue to try to help me as she has. She is very sweet and kind. I have no clue what the futUre holds for me. I am 58, mother of two really wonderful sons. I hope you my friend will find out what is going on with you. Good luck and come back and post again so I will know how you are doing. I will do the same. Take care & GOD BLESS YOU. MARY A

  • I found a lump the size of a ping pong ball when I was 15 (I'm now 22), which made me paranoid because the doctor wasn't sure what it was because I was so young. The doctor removed and biopsied the lump and surrounding tissue. It turned out to be a fibroadenoma. What a relief! But I'm afraid of getting another one, does anyone know it its common to get more fibroadenomas?

  • Hi, Breast fibroadenomas cannot be prevented. They can be discovered early by regular breast self-examination.Fibroadenoma is the most common benign tumor of the breast and the most common breast tumor in women under age 30. Fibroadenomas are usually found as single lumps, but about 10 - 15% of women have several lumps that may affect both breasts. Black women tend to develop fibroadenomas more often and at an earlier age than white women. The cause of fibroadenoma is not known. Plan of Care

  • I found a lump in one of my breasts and it feels hard and smooth almost like a marble.i went to the Doc he gave me an ultrasound and told me it looks like it might be fibroadenoma and its about 2cm long. I'm now waiting to do a biopsy. Since my visit to the doc i've been feeling a bit of pain in my breast and.Sometimes when i raise my arm it hurts a bit. The pain doesn't come only when i'm getting or having my period, it hurts at anytime. I hope it's not serious. (Im 20 by the way)
