I have been diagnosed with fibroadenoma in my right breast. I'm 22. My doctor told me it's not necessary to remove it. I'm very scared of developing malignancy in the future. I stopped taking meat dairy products and sugar. How common is it for me to get breast cancer?

It will not turn into cancer therefore we do not need to remove it. However if it is affecting your peace of mind then for psychological reasons you can get it removed.

Hi, Lybrate user! Hope you are recovering quickly from your recent surgery and doing well from ongoing chemotherapy treatment. Here's wishing you the best in life and Many more years of health and happiness. Breast cancer is the leading cancer in women worldwide. Treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy & hormonal therapy. It is decided by stage of breast cancer. After surgery additional treatment are required to prevent recurrence. In your case, My advise is, you must complete your remaining chemotherapy cycles without any gap in between. It's necessary for you to prevent recurrence. Also consult your for radiotherapy and hormonal therapy (if needed). keep regular follow up with routine investigation as advised by your doctor.
