Fibroadenoma of the breast is a benign fibroepithelial tumor characterized by proliferation of both glandular and stromal elements.
Signs and Symptoms:
The typical case is the presence of a painless, firm, solitary, mobile, slowly growing lump in the breast of a woman of childbearing years.
A Fibroadenoma is usually diagnosed through clinical examination, ultrasound or mammography, and often a needle biopsy sample of the lump
Etiology and epidemiology : Fibroadenomas arise in the terminal duct lobular unit of the breast. They are the most common breast tumor in adolescent women. They also occur in a small number of post-menopausal women. Their incidence declines with increasing age, and they generally appear before the age of thirty years, probably partly as a result of normal estrogenic hormonal fluctuation. Although fibroadenoma is considered a neoplasm, some authors believe fibroadenoma arises from hyperplasia of normal breast lobule components.
Most fibroadenomas are left in situ and monitored by a doctor, or the patient in question. Some are treated by surgical excision. They are removed with a small margin of normal breast tissue if the preoperative clinical investigations are suggestive of the diagnosis. Needle biopsy is often a reliable diagnostic investigation, some doctors decide not to operate to remove the lesion, and instead opt for clinical follow-up to serially observe the lesion over time using clinical examination and mammography to determine the rate of growth, if any, of the lesion. A growth rate of less than sixteen percent per month in women under fifty years of age, and a growth rate of less than thirteen percent per month in women over fifty years of age have been published as safe growth rates for continued non-operative treatment and clinical observation.
Kidney Homeopathic Treatment:
Unlike surgical removal of the tumor which does not removes the cause Homeopathy is capable of curing not only fibroadenomal masses but also checks the tendency of its formation.It acts at the root cause of fibroadenoma by maintaining equilibrium between Oestrgen, Progesteron and Prolactin levels leading to reversal of pathological changes in the breast. After taking constitutional treatment in Homeopathy there is no chance of recurrence of tumour in almost all cured cases.
