Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Fibroadenomas account for the majority of breast biopsies performed today. The natural history of fibroadenomas varies. They are usually found as a solitary, 1-2 cm lesion that is described as being firm, rubbery, nontender, well-circumscribed, and found in women less than 30 years of age. We present an uncommon case of an adolescent female who had a cluster of fibroadenomas in one of her breasts, her treatment, and a review of the literature.
