Abstract

The management and treatment of an adolescent presenting with a fibroadenoma or virginal breast hypertrophy can be challenging as there is a paucity of original research on these conditions. Although surgical therapies are often discussed as first-line therapy in adolescents presenting with a breast mass, it is prudent that nonsurgical interventions and medical therapies be considered as initial therapy with the goal of maintaining an acceptable cosmetic outcome.
