Giant male fibroadenoma: a rare benign lesion.

Author information

A-45, Sector-41, Noida, U.P. India.


Fibroadenoma, the most common breast tumor in adolescent women, usually arises in the terminal duct lobular unit, but is exceedingly rare in the male breast. The usual presentation is a painless, firm, mobile, and slow-growing lump in the breast of a woman of childbearing age. Its diagnosis is usually made by clinical examination, but ultrasound, mammography, and fine-needle aspiration often help in its confirmation. We are presenting here a rare but interesting case of a large fibroadenoma, which was present in a male breast.
