How to handle Breast Lumps - Fibroadenoma

Hi im a 26 year old female.2 years ago i was decteted with a fibroadenoma measuring 2.6 x 1.7 x 0.9 cm in my left breast. Four months later i got another one measuring 0.5 x 0.2 cm in the right breast and the ultrasound said my breasts are fiborous in composition. I got the FNAC done which confirmed that they were completely benign. I consulted a breast specialist who suggested me to have a surgurey before i get married ( and at that time i was planning to get married ) as the fibroadenoma might cause problem during pregnancy. But my marriage took a long time and i got married 3 months ago. So i would want to know what do i do with the two lumps now? As in they are intact from the past two years and are not causing any problem. Also i would like to know are they problematic during pregnancy ? If yes then what kind of problems? Also is it necessary to have them surgically removed now as im planning to have a baby?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If the FNAC test has proved that the lumps were benign, then, these can be left intact. If worried, consider discussing with your doctor/gynecologist and get a mammogram and tumor marker test done to rule out any risks of fibroadenoma developing into cancer. Further treatment as appropriate based on examination findings and evaluation results.
Take care.
