I have been diagnosed of fibroadenoma. The lump size is 3-4 cm. Is surgery necessary?

3 Doctors Answered
Yes. And Get it examined by a good Histo pathologist.
Ideally it should be removed. Still if you don't want surgery right now, keep a close vigilance. Get mammography done at every 6 months.
If size of fibroadenoma is <1 cm then no need for surgery >60% case resolve but your fibroadenoma size is big ,will never resolve.
