Breast fibroadenomas and Breast Reduction
Breast fibroadenomas are extremely common and most young women have them. We routinely perform Breast Reduction surgery on women who have fibroadenomas. All the breast tissue removed is sent to Pathology which further examines it, looking for occult malignancies. As a personal preference, I usually get a baseline mammogram on all my breast reduction patients to serve as a guide in the future of what the breasts used to look like.
