11.5cm Fibroadnoma Tumor

Hello everyone. I recently got diagnosed with Fribroadnoma Breast Disease. I underwent surgery last week to remove the largest non cancerous tumor of 11.5cm. In addition I am coverd from above the nipple in these masses - both scatterd and beaded. Now - as far as I know the breast surgeon removed what he could. At 24 my question is what drives these masses? Can they be controlled to a degree…in terms of the stalling of the growth? The doctors have a questioned and concerned case only because do they rarely see an individual of my age that has this…little alone has these tumors that grow in an excel rate. I’m in a way a little stuck because Im not sure where to turn to etc. I’d love to hear your feedback…advice…etc. I’m so glad I came across this forum - so much detail…support and answers.
