Fibroadenomas are benign breast tumors composed of fibrous and glandular tissue which occur mostly in women 30 years old or younger. According to statistic, approximately 500,000-700,000 fibroadenomas are removed each year in US alone. The benign breast tumors are also called breast mice or a breast mouse due to their high mobility in the breast. They are general painless and may become tenderness or swelling just before the menstrual cycle. women with multiple fibroadenomas may indicate a slightly increased risk of breast cancer.

                       The Treatments

A. In conventional medicine

1. Wait and see
If the benign tumor does not cause any symptom and seem to growing, your doctor may take wait and see attitude. Since there is no symptoms to be treated, using medication or surgery may produce certain unnecessary risk. If the benign tumor it changes, grows, or doesn't go away it may need to be removed at a later time. Most women under the age of 20 with high percentage have seen their tumors disappeared.

2. Surgery
Most of the time, fibroadenomas are removed by needle biopsy or surgical excision under local or general anesthesia, depending to the diagnosis and tests.

3. Cryoablation
Cryoablation is the use of the extreme cold to destroy fibroadenomas tissue under guidance of the ultrasound imaging with conditions recommended by The American Society of Breast Surgeons
a, The lesion must be sonographically visible.
b. The diagnosis of fibroadenoma must be confirmed histologically.
c. Lesions should be less than 4 cm in diameter.
In a syudy of Cryosurgery for Breast Fibroadenomas by Lizhi Niu,KeCheng Xu, researchers concluded that approximately 10% of women will experience a fibroadenoma in their lifetime. Several studies have demonstrated that the percutaneous cryoablation under ultrasound guidance is a safe and effective modality, and should be used as a primary alternative to surgical excision for breast fibroadenoma.
