    00:01 Fibroadenoma in greater detail.

    00:03 Most common benign tumor of the breast.

    00:05 It’s an actual tumor.

    00:07 Composed of fibrous and glandular tissue.

    00:08 Fibroadenoma.

    00:10 Most common tumor in less than 30.

    00:12 It’s a firm, rubbery mass and maybe mobile.

    00:15 It’s benign.

    00:17 The chance of it going on to cancer, very, very slim.

    00:20 This is an actual tumor.

    00:24 Fibroadenoma, benign tumor.

    00:25 Spherical nodule that is sharply circumscribed.

    00:28 This is absolutely benign.

    00:30 Freely mobile.

    00:31 Where does it occur? Upper outer quadrant. Why? Well, this is the area that would have the most amount of what’s known as your fibrous tissue.

    00:39 And so therefore, it would be the quadrant that is going to have a a graphic upcoming that will show you where majority of your tumors of the breast will be located.

    00:49 And it will be the outer upper quadrant.

    00:52 In fact, let me ask you something once again.

    00:55 If you’re thinking about prognosis of breast cancer, eventually when we talk about breast cancer, where is it? What then indicates -- What’s your best indicator for prognosis? Spread to the axial lymph node.

    01:08 Outer quadrant makes it easier for it to then spread to the axial lymph node, unfortunately.

    01:13 Grayish white appearance is the actual tumor, but if you were to take it out, there’s every possibility that you might find it to be blood-tinged.

    01:21 On mammography, you’d find that you would find a tumor and it’s white and it’s large.

    01:28 And it’s histologic picture will be that which is fibrosis.

    01:33 You wouldn’t find increased number of cysts.

    01:35 This is a pure tumor of fibrous nature.
