Breast Fibroadenomas: Gross Appearances

Breast fibroadenomas are non-cancerous breast tumors.  They are the most common benign breast tumors.

They are circumscribed.  They have well-defined borders.

On cut-section, the tumor is white-greyish, lobulated or cauliflower-like resemblance, with a whorl-like pattern and irregularly slit-like spaces.
