Hi may last year I got diagnosed with fibrodenoma in left breast at the side i had a biopsy done while there. Due to have it removed a month ago due to pain, but while there chickened out.

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your problem but I am glad that you are seeking medical attention for the same. A fibroadenoma is a benign lesion of the breast and is rarely associated with cancer. You should monitor the lump for a few months and if it is increasing in size, you should get it removed. Sometimes fibroadenomas subside with time.
Please consult a breast surgeon for the pain in the breasts. Usually it is due to fibroadenosis which is caused by hormonal imbalance and it responds well to medications.

Hope you get well soon.
