Multiple large fibro adenoma in breast. Uncomfortable, painful. Is there any kind of ablation therapy?

I am a 21 year old with multiple large (2-4 inches) fibro adenoma s(one in each breast). I have had them since I was thirteen, and they have become larger. I had a needle biopsy and the results came out benign. They are uncomfortable, and can be painful. Also, they swell , and become heavy during my period. I m nervous about a lumpectomy because I m afraid of the cosmetic results . is there any kind of ablation therapy that I would qualify for?

HI ..

If there is a fibroadenoma, then the only solution is to get them removed as even though they are benign, they tend to grow.

To achieve good cosmetic results we could do the removal from small incision in your breast fold or from around your areola. Please go visit a plastic surgeon or a qualified surgeon, who can do the same for you with minimal or no deformity later on. It can be done, so you do not have to be worried about it.

Thank you for your query
