Outpatient procedure shrinks benign breast lumps

ned for surgical removal. On average, the fibroadenomas were reduced in size by 73 percent. No significant complications were noted, and patients were pleased with the cosmetic results.

Affecting 10 percent of American women, most in their late teens and early 20s, fibroadenomas are often considered a leave-alone lesion. However, approximately 1 million are removed annually because of size, continued growth or for cosmetic reasons. African-American women have twice the incidence of fibroadenomas as Caucasian women. The ability to conserve breast tissue is also highly desirable in the treatment of breast cancer, and Dr. Littrup has begun treating breast cancers under protocol.

Dr. Littrup's co-authors are Laurie Freeman-Gibb, M.S., R.N., Michael White, M.D., Kathy Carolin, M.D., Ted Harb, M.D., and Amit Vyas, M.D. (A grant was received from Sanarus, Inc.)
