Benign breast lesions are lumps in the breast that are non-cancerous. The following conditions may result in a benign breast lesion:

  • Breast cysts
  • Fibroadenomas
  • Fibrocystic breast changes
  • Hyperplasia
  • Intraductal papilloma
  • Mammary duct ectasia
  • Traumatic fat necrosis

Common factors that lead to benign breast lesions include:

  • Breast infections
  • Fibrocystic changes
  • Scar tissue from a breast injury
  • Hormone fluctuations
  • Medications
  • Caffeinated beverages

Not all benign breast tumors require removal. Many will go away without treatment. Cysts, fibrocystic changes, and fibroadenomas will often go away on their own. Your healthcare provider may evaluate the tumor with a mammogram, MRI, or ultrasound. Sometimes the tumor can be watched and monitored for any changes.

Breast lump removal, lumpectomy, or excisional breast biopsy surgery takes about one hour. The procedure is most often performed under general anesthesia. You will be completely asleep during the surgery.

Full recovery after a breast cyst removal will take about a month. However, most times, you’ll be feeling back to normal within two to three days. You’ll need to avoid heavy activity for about one to two weeks. In some cases, you may have a small drainage tube placed that could stay in place up to two weeks after surgery.

After the removal of a fibroadenoma, it is possible to develop new fibroadenomas. These new lumps will need to be evaluated with a mammogram, ultrasound, or biopsy to ensure they are not cancerous.

In general, fibroadenomas are benign and do not increase the risk for cancer. Fibroadenomas that are not changing in size or causing pain may be monitored. However, any changes in the lump should be quickly evaluated and may prompt further testing and removal of the fibroadenoma to ensure it will not cause a problem.

About the benign breast lesion removal Average Cash Prices

This procedure is most commonly performed at either a surgery center or an outpatient hospital.

Surgery centers, also known as ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs), are independent, licensed medical facilities that are governed by distinct regulatory requirements compared with a hospital. Procedures performed at an ASCs are often less expensive than when they are performed at an outpatient hospital, but they typically offer fewer complimentary services, and may not have the full-range of support services that a hospital provides.

Outpatient facilities are outpatient departments or clinics that may be within or next to a hospital, but is owned and run by the affiliated hospital. These facilities can perform surgical treatments and procedures that do not require an overnight stay. Procedures performed at an outpatient hospital are often more expensive than when they are performed in an ambulatory surgery center, but outpatient hospitals may offer more complimentary and support services for patients because they are connected to the hospital system.
