Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I have gone through the report. This report clearly says about cystic lesions and a small well-defined lobulated lesion. Overall this is pretty consistent with a diagnosis with fibrocystic disease and fibroadenoma. Now I will try to answer your queries one by one.

1- What degree the seriousness of this type of disease?
A. These are benign disorders, which means that these does not cause serious problems in the long-run.
2- Is this type of disease occurs for adult girls and disappear in a certain age?
A. Sometimes these start in adolescence and then disappear later. However, even if it persists, there is nothing to worry.
3- Can this transfer to breast cancer in the future and how the percentage of that?
A. These do not transform to breast cancer. However, persons with benign breast disorders have a slightly increased risk of developing breast cancer as compared to persons without these.
4- Would you recommend in dealing with a particular type of food or medicine .. Would you recommend
A. There is nothing to do with food habit. She should have a normal lifestyle and healthy diet and maintain normal weight. For the breast problems, she should undergo periodic check-up and if any new finding or increase in size of the lumps is there, then further investigations may be done.

Hope i have answered your query.I will be available for follow up.
