As you are operated for fibroadenoma of breast,you have not to worry as this is non cancerous lesion.
But your problem scar in the lung requires evaluation.
You consult pulmonologist with Xray and discuss your case,I think with other investigations cause of scar will be concluded and then ask about going abroad.
OK and bye.
