The treatment of a 40-year-old woman with a giant fibroadenoma in her
left breast is presented. The fibroadenoma measured 14 × 5 × 3 cm and weighed
170 g. We demonstrate that the surgical strategy and the reconstructive
techniques in oncoplastic breast cancer surgery successfully can be applied to
the treatment of these rare benign tumours improving
the cosmetic and functional outcome.
