hello dear
evening primerose oil is prescibed for mastalgia ( breast pain-- that to cyclical mastalgia). geven in a dose of 3g a day. other wise role of prime rose is limited. your wt gain may not be related to it.
fibroadenoma needs FNAC to confirm the diagnosis. its better that if you can undergo excisional biopsy for fibroadenoma. fibroadenoma is not a cancer. hence you need not to worry.
thanking you
take care

Pathologist and Microbiologist Dr. M Agarwal's  Response
Primrose oil capsules will help relieve symptoms of pain and discomfort due to fibroadenosis and other fibrocystic disease of breast. Usually it is not helpful to regress an already present Fibroadenoma. Also, the weight loss is not due to primrose oil.
It is best to get the fibroadenoma removed as per your time and convinience.
For unexplained weight gain other commoner hormonal causes as thyroid status or cyclical edema need to be considered.
