    note: although the apperance is compatible with fibrondeoma, the possibility of a phyllode tumor can not be ruled out, re- excision of this lesion may be prudent

    Hi - Bottom line, epithelial tissue is the glands and ducts in your breast; stromal tissue is what connects them. So in rough translation (and I'm not a doctor), it sounds like you have lesions (cancer or benign) in your glands/ducts, and maybe increased cell growth in the connective tissue? A phyllode tumor is a fast-growing tumor that can be either cancerous, or benign. So you have something growing in your breast - but although it LOOKS benign ("apperance is compatible with fibroadenoma)," they have to look at it some more to rule out cancer. Good luck - hope things work out well for you - PJH
