This is a benign non-cancerous breast lesion which presents as lumpiness and associated pain especially during hormonal changes as during the menstrual cycle. These are managed with regular breast self examinations and periodic clinical breast examinations by your physician and 6 monthly or yearly mammograms and ultrasound.
They are removed surgically only if they are very large and causing pain and other pressure symptoms. They are known to spontaneously regress with menopause.
It would be alright to go ahead and get a second opinion with another breast specialsit and decide about the further plan of mangement.
