Abstract

The breasts are made up of skin, fat, epithelial structures and mesenchymal connective tissue, so it is common for different tumors of benign or malignant origin to appear in them. The literature indicates that approximately 85 % of all lumps are benign, especially in patients under 40 years of age. A rapid and exaggerated growth of the breast is attributed to this entity, causing remarkable asymmetry, aesthetic deformity and doubts as to the clinical and cytohistological diagnosis. The singularity of this type of entity justified the development of the present clinical case in order to deepen the knowledge and treatment of this subject. The present study dealt with a 32-year-old nulliparous patient, who presented asymmetric breast growth on the right side of 5 months of evolution, without treatment. She went to the clinic where a fibroadenoma of about 15 x 10cm was evidenced, after a benign histopathological diagnosis, a procedure was scheduled. During the surgical procedure these findings were confirmed and fibroadenoma was removed, procedure without complications. After 5 days of hospitalization the patient was discharged in good condition. In conclusions, a timely clinical, ultrasound and histopathological diagnosis will indicate the initial guidelines for prognosis and resolution of this pathology.
