Question: fibroid changes in breasts?
I recently found a bead like lump in my breast, I went to my gynocologist and she found more on the other breast.She called them fibroid changes and suggested a vitamin supplement and a follow up visit in 8 weeks. Has anyone had these changes happened to them, and what happens after?

Fibroid changes she’s referring to are ‘fibroadenoma’. ….also known as ‘breast mouse’. These are mostly benign (non cancerous) fibrous changes of the breast mass.
Since you’re probably young…your doc probably wants to first correlate the finding with your menstrual cycle then follow up to see if there are any changes later.
If it increases in size or gets harder…you’ll need an FNAC (fine needle aspiration cytology) to rule out cancer.
I would not worry too much at this point….just make sure you do your regular follow up with MD.
