General & Family Physician 's  Response
You are 22/F, HT. 5.9. WT. 55 Kg. - you are suffering from Multiple Fibro Adenoma of left breast for 2 yrs. One of the fibro adenoma which was 2 cm in size recently increased to 3.2 cm.
You are less than 25 yrs (important age to bother), immediate Mammogram, Scan, FNAC to be done. If every thing reports as non cancerous - without wasting time - without bothering disfigurement and ductal damage total excision all the fibro adenomas and once again wait for HPE report especially from the recently increased size. If every thing is normal don't bother - when it is excised in total recurrence is rare. But a close observation is needed for the development of new fibro adenoma. If HPE reports are not normal, treat accordingly.
Best wishes

Hi and welcome to HCm.
You should continue taking this medicine. it is used for pain and has some effect on adenomas size but the results depends from woman to woman. These are moderately large fibroadenomas and you should try with drug therapy first. If this isnt helpful then the surgcal procedure is the only option. Also you should do frequent US and mamography check ups. WIsh you good health.
