Default Fibroadenoma ~ estrogen dependent ?

Goljan RR says fibroadenoma is estrogen sensitive .. ( page 469)

U world says fibroadenoma increases in size during the luteal phase of the menstrual cycle or lactation .. ( ID no 436391)

My doubt is , if fibroadenoma is estrogen sensitive , wouldn't it be logical to increase in size during the prolferative or follicular phase of menstrual cycle ..??

Can someone explain??
