Default breast cancer or fibroadenoma

25yr old mother of 3yr old noticed a lumo in her right breast while taking a bath .she consults her doctor who finds a 3*4cm mobile,non tender lump in upper outer quater of right breast ..there is no lymphadenopathy..the remaining examination is unremarkable .A distant cousin has died of ovarian carcinoma what is diagnosis.

(FROM age and DISTANT relative and no lymphadenopathy i think it is fibroadenoma BUT upper outer quadrant mass reflects breast carinoma) what do you think?

Its Most Likely FibroAdenoma.......upper outer mass does not necessarily reflect Carcinoma....but it it most offen place for it because it is the place with the most tissue. Even she has relatives its not a really relevant...it wasnt her mother or sister
She is not in a age zone for cancer.
But further studies would be made

From what I've read, It probably is a FA but you still have to do breast USG and FNAC to rule out Ca before you can reassure the patient
