Even a small fibroadenoma can turn into a cancerous tumor. This was announced in an interview with Lenta.ru by oncologist-mammologist Danail Nazliev.
Most often, the mentioned formation in the mammary gland appears in young women aged 15 to 30 years. According to the doctor, so many girls live with this benign tumor that it is impossible to count. Most often, fibroadenoma does not manifest itself in any way and does not interfere with the carrier, but it is fraught with a serious danger – it threatens to lead to cancer.
“If the fibroadenoma is small, it can be left alone. However, if it is large or growing, it may need to be removed surgically. Some fibroadenomas may come back after surgery, so it’s important to get regular checkups with your doctor.”Danail Nazliev warned.
The doctor added that the tumor can be felt with the hand – it is dense, mobile, not attached to the surrounding tissues. Sometimes it can cause pain or discomfort. If the tumor is large, it can deform the breast.
“Cancerous growths are sometimes difficult to distinguish from fibroadenoma, cancer has learned to camouflage, so it is important to take a biopsy if there is any doubt”the expert advised.
In conclusion, he noted that if even a small fibroadenoma is found, the best solution would be to remove it. You don’t have to wait for it to grow in size. It can save a life.
