A.

Among the most common benign growths in the breast are cysts (sacs filled with fluid or semisolid material), intraductal papillomas (small wart-like growths that project above a tissue surface), and lumps formed by fat necrosis (the death of tissue, often as a result of trauma to the breast).

A fibroadenoma is the most common type of benign (non-cancerous) breast tumor and is found in young women.
