Hello. Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
FAM or fibroadenoma mammary is one type of benign tumor in the breast. To ensure the breast tumor that is experienced is true FAM, anatomic pathology examination needs to be done on the tissue removed during surgery. After 12 days, there should be no bleeding from the surgical wound. You should check yourself to the doctor, especially the surgeon who operated on you. The doctor will see firsthand the condition of the wound. The doctor will explain whether the condition you are experiencing is still normal or not. The doctor will also provide treatment if indeed there are signs of infection in the area of the former operation. If a lot of blood comes out and is difficult to stop, immediately come to the nearest hospital emergency room. To speed up the healing process, make sure you consume enough protein, such as eggs, fish, chicken, or beef.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
