Fibroadenomas rarely only occur once ... no matter what the treatment, new ones are likely to form. The only other alternative is to just leave it alone, of course this is after a biopsy has determined that this is actually a Fibroadenoma. They are often not removed unless they become very large or are causing considerable discomfort. Regards ....
