breast lump recurrence

Hi. Im 21 years old. i had two breast lumps since i was 16, and recently had them removed as my new gynea was worried about them. they were found to be both Fibroadenomas, now after 6months i found another lump, close to the ones i had removed. it doesnt hurt unless i press it really hard. should i be worried about it?

from what ive read, lumps for women in early 20s isnt unheard of. what did your first biopsy say? lumps do vary in sizes over time, for eg,  according to your hormones, or just before/after your period

It isn't at all unusual for Fibroadenomas to recur. They are benign breast tumors and can either be left alone or removed surgically if they become troublesome. One thing to remember though is that anything new or different involving the breast should be ck.d out  .... at your age probably by Ultrasound. I wouldn't worry about this but I would have it ck.d out ....   Take care
