Background: Fibroadenomas are quite common benign lesions in the adolescent age group but it is a cause of concern for the individual and the family. These may remain asymptomatic or may present with pain. Aesthetic distortion of the breast symmetry may lead to psychosocial morbidity in adolescent females. The diagnosis is initially made by the ultra sound. Magnetic Resonance Imaging is done in some cases where the underlying pathology is in doubt.
Case presentation: We present a 21 years old young female, university student who reported with complaints of a tender mass in the left breast. Ultrasound (US) of breast showed well circumscribed focus indicating benign nature of the lump. Patient was very anxious. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examinations proved the lesions as fibroadenomas.
Conclusion: There is always dilemma for the correct evaluation of the breast lumps but with the help of available cross sectional radiological armamentarium, it is possible to come closer to the diagnosis.

Key words: fibroadenoma, case report, palpable mass, US, MRI, case report
