What is fibroadenoma of the breast?
Fibroadenoma breast lumps are noncancerous tumors in the breast made up of connective tissue and glandular tissue. A breast adenoma, a noncancerous tumor, is specified as fibroadenoma to indicate that it’s located in the breast, as an adenoma can occur in many organs and glands in the body. They’re most common in women in their 20s and 30s, although anyone of any age can develop this condition. If they aren’t removed, the lumps typically shrink after menopause.
