Hi and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your querry.
No, there is a minor possibility that this is cancerous. This is typical finding of fibroadenomas. Such enlarged cancers would cause much more intensive symptoms. usually ultrasound can evaluate with high sensitivity is this malignant. If you want to be sure, biopsy can be performed but i dont think this is necessary. Just do frequent follow ups and everything will be fine.
WIsh you good health.

Dear Ma'am,

Sorry to hear about your condition but fibroadenosis is usually not associated with malignancy. It can lead to breast pain but does not tun into malignancy. It is best to follow up these lesions with annual mammograms and a visit to your surgeon.

Hope you get well soon.
