    What is Fibroadenoma?

    A fibroadenoma is a non-cancerous solid breast lump. They are smooth and firm to feel, round in shape with no fluids in them and have an average size of 1 inch. They do not grow faster or spread to other organs like cancerous breast tumours, posing a life-threatening threat. Fibroadenomas are very common and often develop in young women (under the age of 30) during puberty. There are two types of fibroadenomas:

    1. Complex fibroadenomas
    2. Giant fibroadenomas

    Fibroadenoma Removal Surgery Procedure

    Fibroadenoma removal surgery involves the removal of a non-cancerous tumor, such as a breast fibroadenoma. This procedure is also known as a lumpectomy or an excisional breast biopsy.

    The presence of fibroadenoma can be examined through a breast self-exam, medical exam, or imaging tests such as a screening mammogram or a breast ultrasound. Usually, fibroadenomas cease to grow after menopause, but they may need to be removed before they turn into large fibroadenomas or phyllodes tumours.

    Fibroadenomas do not always require surgery. If the tumour is greater than 2 cm but is growing fast or is painful and causing discomfort during normal activities, you might need surgery to remove it. Doctors also recommend surgery if you have a family history of breast cancer.

    Causes & Symptoms of Fibroadenoma

    Although the exact cause of fibroadenomas is unknown, doctors believe the hormone oestrogen plays a role in their formation. It can occur as a result of hormonal fluctuations (periods or pregnancy) or as a result of a breast abscess or cyst. Many women in their 20s and 30s develop fibroadenoma, which shrinks after they go through menopause.

    Treatment of Fibroadenoma

    Fibroadenomas can be diagnosed with a breast self-exam, a medical exam, or an imaging test such as a screening mammogram or a breast ultrasound. Before the surgery, wire localization is done to identify the location of the fibroadenoma in the abnormal breast area.



    In this procedure, the surgeon removes the lump plus a margin of healthy breast tissue through an incision. Wire localization (needle wire is inserted) is done before the surgery to identify the lump in or near the abnormal breast area. The doctor will make a small incision in the breast and remove the fibroadenoma.

    Later, a pathologist examines a sample of the excised healthy tissue to ensure that the tissue is not cancerous and that all malignancy has been removed.



    The cryoablation technique uses ultrasound guidance to completely destroy benign tumours using a tool called a cryoprobe. The doctor applies liquid nitrogen by inserting a probe through a small cut in the skin near the lump to freeze the tissue. This in-office treatment might just take a few minutes to complete. The body gradually dissolves the dead cells after the fibroadenoma is eliminated, preserving the normal appearance of the breast.

    Vacuum-assisted excision


    Doctor uses this technique to remove the smaller-size fibroadenoma from the breast. They make a small incision through which they insert a probe in the skin to reach the lump, and then a vacuum device sucks it out. The procedure might create a small dent in the breast where the lump has been removed.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Fibroadenomas do not always necessitate surgery (if the size is less than 2 cm), but if your tumour is rapidly growing or causing pain and discomfort during normal activities, you may require surgery to remove it. Doctors also recommend surgery if you have a family history of breast cancer.

      Some fibroadenomas cause pea-sized lumps and stop growing. But some fibroadenomas can double in size within three to six months.

      Lumps are small bumps or bulges that can be cancerous or non-cancerous. Fibroadenoma, on the other hand, is a non-cancerous tumour that develops in the breast tissue.

      Cryoablation is a non-surgical procedure to treat fibroadenoma. This technique uses liquid nitrogen to freeze and destroy the fibroadenoma. You can also consult a general doctor or dermatologist to treat the fibroadenoma with medications or other non-surgical options.

      Usually, the fibroadenomas are removed through a curved incision surrounding the areola that involves a minimal incision, it leaves very few scars, which fade gradually after 6 weeks and are hardly visible.
