Fibroadenomas of the breast, are noncancerous breast tumors (Benign) composed of fibrous and glandular tissue.

Description

Breast fibroadenomas, abnormal growths of glandular and fibrous tissues, are most common between the ages of 15 and 30, and are found in 10% of all women. They are found rarely in postmenopausal women.

Described as feeling like marbles, these firm, round, movable, and “rubbery” lumps range from 1-5 cm in size. Giant fibroadenomas are larger, lemon-sized lumps. Usually single, from 10-15% of women have more than one.

While some types of breast lumps come and go during the menstrual cycle, fibroadenomas typically do not disappear after a woman’s period, and should be checked by a doctor.
