Un fibroadenoma es un tumor benigno no canceroso que se encuentra en el tejido mamario. Cuando se palpa bajo la piel, el tumor se puede sentir semejante al caucho y fácilmente movible dentro del tejido mamario. Los fibroadenomas se encuentran comúnmente en mujeres jóvenes en sus años reproductivos.
