Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about you problem. Fibroadenosis just represents that the breast tissue has become more sensitive to hormonal changes and that is the cause of pain and discomfort. There is no discrete lump formation in this condition but still there is pain.
You just need an annual mammography follow-up and there is no need to be scared.
For this condition you can take vitamin E capsules and wear a well supporting bra.
