i had a ultrasound one year ago showing a possible fibroadenoma and recently had a new ultrasound showing no changes at all in size or shape of it. i thought it would have to be removed but after having two consultations with board certified plastic surgeons who reviewed my reports they both told me that my fibroadenoma would not need to be removed.
i am 23 and have no history of breast cancer in my family. is it safe to continue with breast augmentation or should i insist on having it removed.
A: It would be worthwhile having the opinion of an oncologic breast surgeon
You are asking the right questions. Certainly your youth, family history and stable breast mass favors a benign lesion. Depending on the location of the lesion within the breast, a breast augmentation may alter you ability to follow it over time. Before proceeding further, it would be wise to see an experienced oncologic breast surgeon to have his expert opinion from an oncologic surveillance viewpoint before proceeding with breast augmentation.
