Synopsis

Common, benign, solid, nontender neoplasm of the breast, consisting mostly of epithelial cells. Fibroadenomas typically occur in young women, and rarely in postmenopausal women unless receiving hormone treatment. Studies report occurrence of multiple fibroadenomas in 10%-15% of patients. Multiple fibroadenomas of the breast, which are linked to mutation in the PRLR gene, are a genetic disorder characterized by the presence of 3 or more fibroadenomas in one breast. Identification is made by needle aspiration biopsy, imaging, and histology. Treatment includes excision or cryoablation of the mass.

For more information on multiple fibroadenomas of the breast, see OMIM.
