Tubular adenoma is a rare and benign tumor of breast occurring especially in young women of reproductive age. Grossly, they appear as solid circumscribed masses. Microscopically they are composed of tubular structures. We describe a case of this rare, benign tumor in a 26-year-old which was initially treated as fibroadenoma but later presented as fungating mass. Surgical excision was done and on histopathological examination confirmed features of tubular adenoma. Keeping a possibility of tubular adenomas in fungating masses of breast will help to go for more conservative approach rather than radical surgeries.
