Thanks for your question. I would say with assurance that if it is fibroglandular or fibroadenoma then it is benign and nothing to worry about that. It is the most common benign tumor of the breast in young females. Retroareolar means means behind the areolar region of the breast. Fibroglandular tumors often stop growing or even shrink on their own without any treatment. In these cases, doctors may recommend not having the tumors removed. But I would say it is very important to confirm this with the help of Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC). Biopsy results are very important. Dont worry because fibroglandular tumor is totally benign and I have never seen in my practise of this tumor turning into cancer.
