I am 45, no history of any lumps of any kind. Approximately 3 weeks ago, I felt a rather large, hard lump in my left breast. Was sent for emergency mammo followed by ultrasound. Was informed that there were in fact 2 lumps, the large one and a smaller one. They were quite certain it was fibroadenoma but wanted the large one biopsied. Had that done on Friday and now waiting for results. When I went on Friday the radiologist said there were 2 smaller ones. I am wondering how common it is to develop the sudden onset of a fibroadenoma at 45 and what the likelihood of this hiding malignant cells.
