Can Non Cancerous Fibroadenoma Casue Skin Dimpling?

Mammagram shows suspected fibroadenoma but I have a dimpling of skin in that area, .Can a non cancerous fibroadenoma cause dimpling?

Answer

Yes, a fibroadenoma can cause skin dimpling. Unfortunately, so can cancer. But many, many more women have fibroadenomas than cancer, so take heart: the statistics are on your side. Make sure to continue with the diagnostic process until they determine for sure what's going on, OK? Don't let them tell you to "wait and see"—you want to figure out what this is and deal with it, if necessary. Good luck- PJH
