Hi,

It is a benign condition of the breast the exact cause of which is unknown. However it could be due to hormonal imbalance (increased estrogen which stimulates growth of the mammary glands). You should have a regular breast examinations or imaging tests to make sure the fibroadenomas are not growing. A breast biopsy may be needed to know if a tumor is a fibroadenoma or some other problem. Surgical treatment may be required if the fibroadenomas are large or get bigger and cause pain.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
