@tersia, welcome. You must have been surprised that the biopsy ended up being a lumpectomy. But that is good news that it was removed with clear margins of healthy tissue around the lump. Fibroadenosis of breast is a non-cancerous abnormal lump in the breast.

Here's more information from Mayo Clinic:
– Fibroadenoma https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/fibroadenoma/symptoms-causes/syc-20352752

Members like @trixie1313 @danielle0313 @cindylb @smaac001 also have experience with fibroadenomas and can share their experiences.

Tersia, is it being recommended that you have a mastecomy of both breasts? Or is this something that you wish to have after this scare?

It’s not cancer. if it was me, I wouldn’t want any mastectomies?

I`m surprised that you would be able to find a Dr that would perform that procedure, or an insurance company that would pay for it.
