Fibroadenoma

Fibroadenoma is most common benign tumor of the breast. It is symptoms being accidentally discovered by self-examination. An uniform, firm, mobile painless, well defined mass is felt on palpation. Commonly they are bilateral and 2-3 cm in diameter. Fibroadenoma is classified into two varieties: Pericanalicular and Intracanalicular. Pericanalicular or hard type usually occur in young girls between 15-30 years of age. Intracanalicular or soft fibroadenoma more commonly affects the older age group from 30-50 years of age. The exact cause of fibroadenoma is not known. Hormonal treatment has been associated with higher risk of developing fibroadenoma.

Although the treatment is surgical but it can be treated with Homoeopathic medicines on holistic basis. A clinical study conducted at GCCHR has shown encouraging results.
