Welcome to healthcaremagic.com.Fibroadenomas are the commonest benign breast lumps.If the fibroadenoma is small (say, less than 1 cm in its largest dimension), non-palpable and not associated with symptoms, the surgeon may advise that this can be observed rather than removed. If the fibroadenoma is large (more than 2cm in its largest dimension), palpable and associated with tenderness, removal is often advised. However, if it is large (more than three cm), painful, growing, or a biopsy
results in atypical (very active) cells, you can have it surgically removed with a lumpectomy
. If you qualify, you can have fibroadenomas removed with a laser ablation
(using heat) or cryoablation
(freezing). In-situ ablation of fibroadenomas can be done in-office, leaves tiny scars
, and has fast recovery.
