Fibroadenoma is the most common breast mass in the adolescent population. There are no definite data regarding the exact incidence of fibroadenoma among the US general population. Fibroadenoma commonly affects individuals younger than 30 years of age. Females are more commonly affected with fibroadenoma than males.

Overview

Fibroadenoma is the most common breast mass in the adolescent population. There are no definite data regarding the exact incidence of fibroadenoma among the US general population. Fibroadenoma commonly affects individuals younger than 30 years of age. Females are more commonly affected with fibroadenoma than males. Fibroadenoma usually affects individuals of the African American race. Caucasian individuals are less likely to develop fibroadenoma.[1][2]

Epidemiology and Demographics

Incidence

  • The incidence of fibroadenoma is approximately 2.2% in the adolescent population.[3]

Prevelance

  • Fibroadenoma is the most common benign breast tumor in women under the age of 30.[3]
  • Fibroadenoma constitutes about 50% of all breast biopsies, with this rate rising to 75% for biopsies in women under the age of 20 years.[2]
  • Multiple fibroadenomas occur in 10 to 25% of cases

Age

  • Fibroadenoma can be found most commonly in women between the age of 14 to 35 years but it can be found at any age. It is less commonly seen in postmenopausal women.[4]

Gender

  • Females are more commonly affected with fibroadenoma than males.[1]

Race

  • Fibroadenoma usually affects individuals of the African American race. Caucasian individuals are less likely to develop fibroadenoma.[1]
