Avatar n tn Hi, Fibroid breast tumors or Fibroadenomas are the most common types of breast lumps that occur in women especially in their 20s or 30s and they are benign in nature (Not cancer) and are usually left alone but could be surgically removed if they cause excessive pain. The doctor will occasionally monitor these lumps to see if they change or grow. You don't say what your doctor has recommended concerning the Microcalcifications which are quite normal in breast tissue and they are not harmful.
