Hello, I have a 20-year-old sister and she has a lump on her breast, and today on October 10, 2019, I went to a general practitioner and the doctor diagnosed that my sister had a fibroadenoma tumor, which I wanted to ask if this tumor was dangerous because after I read information about fibroadenoma there are indications that this tumor does not cause pain, but what my sister feels is pain but not too often whether the tumor level has gone up is that a reasonable effect?

1 Answer:

Hello Rifal,


Lumps in the breast can occur due to several causes such as:

Benign breast tumor or called fibroadenoma mammae (FAM) which has the character of a lump easy to move, feels chewy and often does not cause symptoms
Cysts or the formation of fluid-filled sacs
Abnormal fat lumps or called lipomas
Breast gland infection or mastitis but more often affects breastfeeding mothers
Other causes

Changes in the cycle or hormonal conditions also affect which can cause pain, especially if entering the menstrual period until menstruation is complete. If the cause of a breast lump is FAM, there is no need to worry because it is benign despite the fact that FAM itself can arise with varying amounts and sizes.


Consult your sister's condition with the surgeon for the next step in handling the removal of the tumor tissue so that further examinations are conducted to assess whether the lump is dangerous or not. If the pain arises, it can be compressed using cold compresses or can take pain relievers such as paracetamol if needed.
