I found a lump in my left breast a couple weeks ago and had my hospital appointment today, I found out that luckily it was a fibroadenoma and is just over 1cm big.

To conclude this I just had the ultrasound scan but I didn’t have a biopsy like most other women, and in the leaflet they gave me it says that you usually need one for the diagnosis.

I’m really worrying that I should’ve insisted on having one because I’m getting anxious about mis-diagnosis etc, but they seemed certain I didn’t need one at the hospital, did anyone else here have the same experience? I am only 22 so maybe that’s why?

Hello bea_m

I’m sorry to hear that you’ve been dealing with a health concern recently. 

Fibroadenomas are often easier to identify in younger women. If you’re in your early 20s or younger, your fibroadenoma may be diagnosed with a breast examination and ultrasound only. 

If you’d like to talk through your concerns with one of our nurses then do give them a call. They will be able to offer some advice and support. You can call them on 0808 800 4040 (monday to Friday 9am to 5pm). 

Best wishes,

Hi Bea, 

I am a lot older than you (47) but I had fibroadenomas (lots of them) when I was your age and the ultrasound is the most effective way of identifying them. 

I am not telling you this now to scare you  to think you might every get breast cancer, I am telling you to reassure you – I found another lump at Christmas but one that was 3.5cm and just didn’t feel the same. I went for a mammogram then an ultrasound and they did a biopsy because they knew it was cancer they were looking at. Even when the first biopsy came back as normal breast tissue becuase the needle can glance off the tumour and miss it, they went in and did another so they could prove to me it was cancer. They absolutely could tell me the difference between the new fibroadenoma they found in my right breast and the cancerous mass in my left breast. 

I am having a mastectomy on Tuesday because the virus means my treatment plan has changed, but I haven’t spent the last 25 years worrying about this day and you shouldn’t either. It doesn’t mean just because you have a fibroadenoma you will get cancer, because I only have it in one place, and it’s not that my fibroadenoma has changed into cancer because it hasn’t. Just make sure you check your lumps, and your breasts, check everything feels the same as it always does and check when it feels different. 

Take care xxx
