    Juana Teresa Santiago Pérez*, José Miguel González Barcena, Yuranis Gárciga Martin and Yahumara Suarez Morales

    Fibroadenoma is the most frequent benign tumor of the breast, although its classification as a true benign tumor or as a mastopathy related to circulating estrogens is discussed today.

    They usually occur below 30 years and constitute 76% of breast masses between 10 and 20 years. Bilateralism has been reported between 12 and 16% of fibroadenomas. The type called Juvenile or Giant only reaches 2% of all Fibroadenomas and 7% of all lesions of the breast in children under 20 years.

    The most common form of presentation is like a solid, mobile and painless tumor that can acquire a large size.

    The diagnosis of these masses is made with physical examination and imaging techniques, mainly ultrasound.

     The diagnostic confirmation is given by the histological study.

    The surgical treatment must be individualized in each case, taking into account its particularities.

    We present the case of a 72-year-old woman who goes to an outpatient clinic for a giant tumor in the breast, imaging and histological studies are possible, and by joint decision in the multidisciplinary team the surgical treatment is decided and surprisingly the histological result , results in a giant fibroadenoma of the breast.
