Question Breast mass pathology

The following slide is the microscopic appearance of a breast mass. To the right is compressed breast connective tissue forming a "capsule" to this mass. The neoplasm itself is composed of a fibroblastic stroma in which are located elongated compressed ducts lined by benign appearing epithelium.
Which statement is not correct regarding this disease?
A) This is the most common breast tumor in women younger that 25 years of age.
B) The tumor is entirely benign.
C) The intracanalicular form of the disease distorts glands into slitlike spaces.
D) In the pericanalicular form of the disease, fibrous stroma proliferates around the ductal spaces, so that they remain round or oval, on cross section.
E) The disease contains discrete, firm, rubbery masses that are not movable.
